Option #3: City of Dallas Brush and Bulky Trash Collection
Customers may request an oversize collection of a mattress of up to 20 cubic yards once per calendar year by calling 3-1-1 or submitting a service request online or through our mobile application OurDallas. The service request must be submitted the week prior to the customer’s brush/bulk collection week. A service request can be submitted up until Sunday 11:59PM the day before their scheduled Monday collection Week. The service request can not be cancelled once submitted.
Option #4: Giveaway or Sell on Craigslist
If your mattress is in decent condition, it is very probable that someone may want to use it. Believe it or not there are actually a lot of people who benefit greatly from saving a buck and purchasing a used mattress. PRO TIP: Make sure to take nice pictures and highlight the fact that your mattress DOES NOT have any stains and DOES NOT have bed bugs. This will put potential buyers minds at ease and increase the chances that someone will take it off your hands for you.
Option #5: DIY Mattress Recycling Project
If you are a DIY and like taking on projects why not recycle your mattress yourself. This could be a great way to teach your kids about being resourceful or just a fun way to save some money and the environment. By recycling your mattress you can save on average 26sq.ft. of landfill space. We have a great step-by-step blog post on how to break down and recycle your own mattress. Along with another post on how to recycle your box spring yourself. To do this all you need is an exacto knife and some space (things may get messy). Simply cut around the edges of the mattress until you can take off the cover. Inside you will find foam and metal springs. Separate the foam and metal. You can actually bring the metal springs to the scrap yard and they will pay you for them. As for the foam you can shred it up and use it in dog beds, to fill pillows, or you can find a local carpet manufacturer who may pay you for the foam.
