This is Why You Need OC Junk Hauling to Take Away Unwanted Mattresses


Mattress Haul Away In Orange County

Each year, less than 5% of mattresses are recycled, even though up to 90% of the components can be recycled.  Your worthless mattress could be used to create carpet padding, animal bedding, mulch, and more. Unfortunately, much of a mattress and its contents end up in landfills or illegally dumped on curbsides, imposing significant management costs on local governments and taxpayers (that’s you!)

You didn’t know that? OC Junk Hauling drivers & crew, having traveled from north to south and east to west in Orange County, do. We are experts at quickly & cleanly getting the mattress, box spring, frames, pillows, etc. up and out of your home, so you can make room for the new replacements.

But, when exactly should you replace the mattress?

The Better Sleep Council recommends replacing your mattress every 7-10 years, depending on comfort and support. The truth is that the life of a mattress varies wildly, which depends on how you take care of it, how you sleep on it and how often you rotate it.

Did you catch that last word? Rotate. You have heard this myth: A mattress should be flipped every few months to keep it in good condition. Wrong. Most mattresses today are made one-sided, which means they should never be flipped. Just rotate your mattress monthly for the first 6 months and quarterly after that.

While we are on the subject of myths…. It’s against the law to remove the law tag on your mattress.

The warning against removing the law tag of your new mattress can be intimidating.  The Restonic mattress company advises, “The truth is that once you’ve bought the mattress and it’s in your home, you can do whatever you want with it. But if you ever need to file a warranty claim, it needs to be attached to the mattress because it contains critical information that will help the manufacturer process your claim.”

As one of the leading companies when it comes to mattress pickup and disposal, OC Junk Hauling operates in strict adherence with the Used Mattress Recovery and Recycling Act of the State of California.
