Keeping Portland weird is a lot of work, and the local heroes who do the job deserve a good night's rest on a clean, comfortable mattress. Replacing your old mattress presents a bit of a problem though: what can you do with the old one?
Throwing Out an Old Mattress Is More Complicated Than It Should Be
Putting your old mattress out for curbside pickup is rarely an option. Portland's waste management service can be picky about what it will collect, and considering the condition most old mattresses are in -- at least visually -- you may not want that thing on the curb in front of your house anyway. Hauling it to the dump yourself might be an option, if you have a truck, and if the landfill will take it when you get there, and if you have the dump fees on you right then and there. That's a lot of ifs, especially if you've just spent the money on a new mattress and box spring and you're a little tapped for the rest of the month.
Keeping It Around Is Also Not an Option
With the hassle and expense of dumping your old mattress yourself, it can be tempting to just toss it and the box spring into the corner of your garage and pretend you don't see it there until the time comes to sell your house. That's not really an option though; old mattresses are likely breeding grounds for mold (especially with the weather we get here) and bed bugs. There's also a safety issue, since kids can hardly resist jumping on the thing when they find it, broken springs and all. Finally, mattresses are big, and they take up valuable space in storage that should be occupied by old Christmas lights and boxes full of clothes you'll never wear again, not old bed furniture.
