Mattress Removal Costs

Professionals & Services Cost Guides      Junk Removal & Hauling      Mattress Removal Costs

When you are getting a new mattress, you have to remember that you need to do something with the old mattress that you no longer need. If the mattress is still in good shape, you might be able to use it in a bedroom in the guestroom, or you might have a friend or family member who could use a mattress. Donation is another option. The charity will often pick up the mattress from your home, but you will likely need to have it out of the bedroom and ready to go.

Most of the time, you will have to have the mattress removed and disposed of properly. Different locations will have different rules and regulations when it comes to mattress removal. You will need to find the rules in your area to be sure you are following them properly.

Mattress removal: by service type.

Other considerations and costs

  • In certain states, you are required by the law to recycle the mattress, which means you can’t simply throw it into a landfill.
  • If you were to dump the mattress illegally, it can come with large fines and penalties.
  • Burning a mattress to get rid of it will release toxic chemicals into the air and should not be done.

DIY considerations

  • You can remove the old mattress on your own, but you will likely want to have some help from at least one other person. Mattresses can be heavy and unwieldy.
  • If you are removing the mattress yourself, you will need to have the means to move the mattress to a recycling center or landfill. This means owning, borrowing, or renting a truck that will be able to safely transport the mattress.
