Mattresses are easily disposed of.

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.


Step 1

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.
