Consider recycling

If you think your mattress could  be sold or donated but don’t want to be hassled with taking it to the transfer station and paying for the dumping, recycling it could be a good option. Recycling mattresses means you have to break down your mattress and take the parts that you can use for other projects. Mattresses are usually framed with wood, supported by metal springs, cushioned by layers of foam or natural fiber, and covered with a linen cloth. If you don’t need the recyclable parts, you can now dump these in the bins or dumpsters for disposal.

Mattresses, regardless of their sizes, can be difficult to get rid of, mainly because of their bulk. They are also heavy and though they have many recyclable parts, not many companies take the job of recycling them. So one piece of advice we want you to remember is that, whenever you buy new mattresses, ask the people at the store if they can take their mattresses back for disposal once they get old.

Yes, we know that mattresses can take 8-10 years to wear out, but in our experience, many people will abruptly change their mattresses once they do not feel comfortable with them. So if the company that sells you the mattress has a warranty that includes the take-back product policy, that would be good.
