Options for Getting Rid of Your Old Mattress in Indianapolis

You can definitely #donate an old, unwanted mattress, however, it is important to keep in mind that in order for a mattress to be considered acceptable for donation it must be stain and rip free. As most of us know though, sleeping on a mattress for even a short period of time often means there will be some significant wear and staining unless you have taken specific measures to prevent them.
Bed bugs are another consideration before trying to donate your old mattress in Indianapolis. A #mattress infested with bedbugs will need to be disposed of, there is no way to donate it.
Check your local Indianapolis area for donation centers that will take old mattresses. Some charities and organizations will even come and pick the mattress up for you if they deem it is in good enough shape to take. Other charities may require that you bring the mattress to them which can cause a problem if you do not have a truck.

ABC Junk can pick up your old mattress and donate it to the charity of your choice for you if you do not have the means to get it there yourself. Simply give us a call to set it up! Finding and choosing the best junk removal company can be a time consuming task.
Throwing Away
Putting your old mattress out to the curb for trash pickup will likely not be an option. Most regular waste management companies will not accept the #mattress and you will end up lugging that thing back into your house or garage until you can figure out what to do with it.
Some people try putting the mattress out by the curb with a “free” sign, but mattresses don’t have a good track record with being picked up by a passersby. You may get luck and someone with a truck will scoop it up and take it off your hands for you but keep in mind that that is rare. Most people driving by likely don’t have the space to take an old mattress.
People are also wary of bed bugs as they are found very easily in mattresses and are very difficult to get rid of.
If you call ABC Junk to get rid of your mattress, we will pick it and determine if it is in sufficient shape for donation. If so, the mattress will be donated. If not, we will recycle any part that we can and the rest will be disposed of properly.
You can feel confident that by calling ABC Junk to take care of your old mattress removal, you are choosing a company with eco friendly values and who will dispose of the mattress properly.
