How to Dispose of a Mattress and Box Spring in Atlanta


Disposing of a mattress and box spring can be cumbersome as they are far too large to be left out for curbside pickup. Although most mattress stores offer removal of your old mattress and box spring with delivery, the added price can be exorbitant. There are numerous ways to dispose of an unwanted mattress and box spring in Atlanta.

  • Donate an unwanted mattress and box spring to a nonprofit organization. Organizations in Atlanta accepting mattress and box spring donations include the Forsyth County Family Haven and The Furniture Bank of Metro Atlanta. Local shelters may accept donations as well.

  • List the mattress and box spring on a free classifieds site, such as craigslist or freecycle. Place an ad stating the mattress and box spring is free if picked up to eliminate the need to transport the mattress set.

  • Contact a junk removal service to arrange for pickup of the mattress and box spring. Services in Atlanta advertise in the yellow pages as well as online.

  • Transport the mattress to the Gateway Transfer Station at 1625 Westgate Parkway for disposal.
