What to Do with Your Old Bed

How You Can Get It out of Your House

What to Do with Your Old Bed

Are you enjoying the long winter nights in the comfort of your cozy bedroom, or do you wake up groggy and wonder how you managed to get a sore back? When you spend nearly a third of your life sleeping, your sleep space is incredibly important to your health and overall wellbeing. Unfortunately, if you want to make an upgrade, you first need to get rid of your old bed. Learn what you can do with the mattress and boxspring.

What to Do with Your Old Bed


  • Donate: A lightly used mattress can be donated to organizations that support the at-need population in your community. However, not all nonprofits are willing to take mattresses, so you might need to spend some time researching.
  • Sell: If your mattress is from your barely-used guest room and like-new, you might be able to make a few dollars. Go onto your local community yard sale site and put it up for a steep discount.
  • Recycle:¬†80% to 100% of the average mattress can be disassembled and broken down into recyclable parts. Unfortunately, it’s not always easy or free. You can learn more from the Mattress Recycling Council.


  • Donate: Just as nonprofits in your area need mattresses, they might need boxsprings, too! (Although these are likely in less demand.) When searching for an organization in your community for your mattress, ask if they would like your boxspring as well.
  • Sell: Make your mattress sale extra appealing by offering a free boxspring. Or, if your mattress isn’t in good condition, try selling it by itself.
  • Recycle: Like mattresses, boxsprings have many recyclable parts. Call around to see what recycling facilities in your community can take it for you.
