Mattress Haul Away & Mattress Recycling


When it comes to mattress disposal, the first thing that comes to mind is the nearest local landfill. However, not many of us think of actually recycling them. Ironically, mattresses are filled with materials that can easily be recycled.

Mattresses are made up of various materials such as foam, metal springs, wood, and cotton, all of which are actually very recyclable. While it is possible to recycle the mattress yourself, you should know that it is not an easy task as mattresses are very difficult to disassemble.

Why Should You Recycle Your Mattress?

Believe it or not, rejected mattresses contribute largely to local landfills. In Orange County alone, over 3 million mattresses are disposed of in landfills every year. By recycling your mattress, you can contribute to the environment by using less space in landfills and creating less pollution.

Some Key Facts About Mattress Recycling

Believe it or not, almost all throwaway mattresses can be easily recycled. OC Junk Hauling will arrange easy pickup of your old mattress and will thereafter transport it to a recycling facility, where it will be taken apart and its component materials will be recycled.

Many materials, such as box springs, are almost 100% recyclable. Made up of a steel cage or a wooden cage and frame with an outer layer made up of fabric cotton, the materials can be easily separated and recycled.

Different Ways Of Getting Rid Of Your Old Mattress – And Why Mattress Recycling Trumps Them All

The eponymous question, “How would you get rid of your old mattress?” is one most people want to avoid. This is mainly because it is difficult for an average person to simply throwaway the mattress in the trash (since they tend to be large). Furthermore, many (read, practically all) communities do not like the idea of a mattress lying around by the dumpster.

You might consider donating the mattress to a local charity, but that is a task that’s difficult at best. Most charities in California like Goodwill and the Salvation Army do not accept used mattresses or box springs. They only accept those that are brand new and covered in plastic, in order to keep out infestations, such as bed bugs.

You could also throw away the old mattress at a local landfill for a fee but that too is not feasible, given the fact that it is not easy to transport them, especially since most people’s cars aren’t exactly suited to carry large objects (such as mattresses).

You could also (like most people who get fed up of trying to find a suitable way) leave the mattress in your backyard, side yard, alley, or garage and then forget all about it. That, however, is also not a good choice, since it will go on to act as a breeding ground for pests and rodents. Furthermore, mattresses are treated with chemicals that are flame retardant chemicals, which may leach out if they are left in the open.

Needless to say, the best, safest, most reliable, most affordable, and most eco-friendly method of doing away with your old mattress is to book an appointment with OC Junk Hauling. We offer efficient and quick mattress pickup and removal services, and make sure that your old mattress does not end up in some landfill.
