It’s important to think about how you’re going to get rid of your old mattress before your new one is delivered. Recycling, donating and selling your mattress are all options that will keep your old mattress out of a landfill so you can enjoy your new mattress knowing that you did your part to help protect the environment.
Did you know?
Americans dispose of an estimated 20 million mattresses and box springs every year and the vast majority end up in landfills or incinerators. That’s roughly 55,000 discarded each and every day. They contribute 450 million pounds of waste and fill more than 100 million cubic feet of landfill space every year. End-on-end, the number of disposed mattresses every year would circle the earth.
