How can I get rid of a full size matress?

I am getting a new matress today as a gift and I know that second hand stores can't sell them and its still good, how do I get rid of the "old" matress?

  • You have to call waste management in your area and find their dump. You'll probably have to pay about $40 to dump it as well.

  • Lay it out on the lawn with a sign that says "free". Depending on where you live, it will be picked up rather quickly lol.

  • List it for free on craigslist or freecycle. I did this a few years ago, and my set was picked up within an hour!

  • We freecycle or put the item to the curb. The city picks up stuff like that once a week

  • Put a Free, you pick it up ad in your local Craigslist. You HAVE to give away used mattresses. It is against the law to sell them.
