How to Get Rid of a Mattress in Las Vegas (5 Local Options)
Mattresses in Las Vegas can be a difficult thing to get rid of. Regulations around mattress disposal are becoming more and more strict and more companies are refusing to accept them. Luckily, we have researched various options for you to get rid of a mattress here in Las Vegas and have compiled a list below. We have included options for you to sell it, donate it, dispose of it, or recycle it (which is what we do!).

Option #2 – Bulky Item Pick Up
Most cities will have a bulky item pick up service and will allow you to add on a large item to your regular trash service 1-2 times a year. Most of Las Vegas works with Republic Services as their trash provider and they do have options for a paid Bulky Item removal as well.
Option #3: Drop off – Las Vegas Local Landfill
You are lucky to have the largest landfill in North America just 25 miles outside of Las Vegas. The Apex landfill is a
model for the rest of the country and is doing wonderful things with trash to generate energy to power Las Vegas.
If you have a truck, and a friend to help, you can load up your mattress and take it to the dump. Be sure to call first
to check hours of operation and check on the fees to dump a mattress.
Landfill option #1 – Apex Regional Landfill
Landfill Option #2 – Wynn Collection Center
Option #4: Donate
Donating your lightly used mattress to someone in need is a great option! Family members or friends are often
potential recipients. You can also check with your favorite charity, church, or community center. Donation centers
will sometimes take mattresses if they are in good shape, free of stains, and are 5 years old or under.** We checked
with donations centers Salvation Army, Habitat for Humanity, and Goodwill in Las Vegas and unfortunately, due to
sanitary concerns and bed bug concerns, none are accepting mattresses for donation at this time.
Option #5: Sell it – Las Vegas Craigslist or FaceBook Marketplace
New Mattresses can be quite expensive, so there are many people who may not have the resources to buy a new
mattress. A gently used mattress without tears, stains, or bed bugs could be a welcome item for them. Make sure
you take a nice picture of your mattress and state clearly that it doesn’t have stains or bed bugs. Maybe you can
make a little extra cash and help someone else save a buck.
Option #6: DIY – Do it Yourself Mattress Recycling
Do what we do – Tear apart your mattress with a carpet knife and separate the materials, and then use the
materials for other things. You can use the foam to make pillows, or dog beds, or you can take the foam to a
carpeting manufacturer. Manufacturers use the foam to make carpeting underlayment. You can take the steel to
your local recycling center. Cut up the wood from your boxspring and use it for firewood.
We have a great step-by-step “How To Guide” on our blog that you can follow.
