Need to get rid of your old mattress?

Do you ever see mattresses discarded on a street corner or dumped by the side of the road? Why do people do this?  Probably because they can be difficult to dispose of, sometimes costly, or people are just not sure what to do with them. Some states even have laws preventing them from ending up in landfills.


With up to 20 million mattresses and box springs disposed of each year there is a need to deter them from landfills and to recycle them.  Each mattress/box spring has over 80% of recyclable materials, there is not much that can’t be recycled. These are:

  • Fabric - Is sometimes already made of recycled material and can be recycled again for mattress or other industries (clothing, insulation).
  • Springs and metal - melted and recycled for numerous applications.
  • Foam - Is chopped up and used in padding (floor, sound, etc)
  • Wood - Is recycled in pulp for paper, fuel, mulch, boxes, and much much more.

Now you are asking how do I get rid of this darn thing!  Well, there are a couple of options:

  • The company you bought your new mattress through will sometimes dispose of your old one for free or a small fee.
  • Dispose of it yourself.  Call your local city hall or transfer station to see if they accept them or if they recycle them.  Cost should run anywhere from $10 to $30 per mattress/box spring.
  • Sell it on Craigslist, Letgo, a Facebook sale site, or any other outlet.
  • Donate it. This probably will take a lot of time, but call around to organizations who might have a need for something like this.  Some ideas:  Goodwill, Salvation Army, halfway houses, homeless shelters, domestic violence shelters, and  thrift/consignment stores.  Some states have laws against resale of used mattress.
  • Some areas have companies that deal only will mattress recycling. Try Googling mattress recycler.
  • A majority of junk removal companies will remove and dispose of it (or any other junk).  The pros are you don't have to do much physical labor, but the con is that it will cost you approximately $100 to dispose off.
  • Rent a dumpster.  If you have a bunch of other debris to dispose of this would be the economical way, but make sure you check first with the company to see if they will take them and if so is there any additional charge.
  • Check out This is a site where you can type in your zip code and find resources for disposing of certain items locally.

For more information on items that are allowed in our rentals, or recycle items, please feel free to call our office or contact us online.

The Bin There Dump That Difference

Are you looking to rent and dumpster for a home project, but not sure which company will best fit your needs? Here are just a couple of things to keep in mind when scouting around for the ideal dumpster rental match. 

Q.  Do you have a tight or restricted schedule for when your dumpster rental needs to be delivered or picked up?
A.  No problem! We work with homeowners all the time that find themselves up against deadlines due to either selling their homes, closing dates, scheduling showings or walk-throughs, or even navigating a remodeling project. We want to make sure you are able to utilize your time with the bin as efficiently as possible to accomplish your project at hand. 

Q.  Did you just get your driveway done, and are worried about what kind of damage a dumpster rental may cause? 
A.  All of our rentals come with 100% property protection guarantee. We place protective boards down prior to placement of the bin. This not only ensures that your driveway will be safe from any damage, but also helps to evenly distribute the weight of the bin.

Q.  Are you scheduling a dumpster in preparation for a new roof?

A.  New roofs or roof repairs can also come with stray nails being left behind once the job is finished. To help avoid this, on pick up, our uniformed Dumpster Delivery Experts will tarp and load your rental for transportation. Once loaded, they will sweep up the area around where the bin was placed to make sure no loose debris are left behind. At Bin There Dump That are the clean guys in a trashy business!

Q. You've never rented a dumpster before, and you're not sure which size you'll need...

A.  Knowing which size bin will best cover your project can sometimes be difficult. Especially if you've never rented one before, and don't really have anything to gauge it by. When calling us, our knowledgeable Dumpster Rental Consultants are happy to discuss your needs, answer any questions, and recommend a size that will be ideal for your project. 

Q.  Do you need a dumpster rental, but have a narrow road or tight driveway? 

A.  At Bin There Dump That all of our equiptment is built to be residential friendly. This means that we can fit into tight spots that others can't due to their bulky or oversized trucks and bins. All of our bins are equipped with double back doors. This feature is not only super helpful for walk-in loading, but it also allows us to place the bin closer to your home or project without needing extra clearance to swing open a heavy bulkhead door.

How To Prepare Your Home For A Dumpster Rental

A dumpster rental is a wonderful tool to have for your home project. With it, homeowners have the opportunity to clean out and de-clutter their homes in one fell swoop. Trying to accomplish such a task with regular garbage bags would be a weekly curbside shuttle of unwanted items that would make anyone want to avoid doing the job all together.

With one of our residential friendly Bin There Dump That dumpster rentals, you have the freedom to schedule it at your convenience, and with our property protection guarantee, you won't have to worry about any damage to your driveway during the rental.

Here are some tips to keep in mind when expecting your bin delivery for your home project, to make sure the time spent with your rental is productive.

Consolidate The Clutter 
Clutter comes in all shapes and sizes. It also has the tendency to accumulate and spread throughout your home. Before your dumpster rental arrives, try to consolidate the clutter to a specific area where you are able to focus on these items and begin the sorting process as to what should stay, be donated, or go into the bin.

Sort The Clutter 
You'll probably find that most of the unwanted items can be tossed into the dumpster without a second thought. But, there will be a few that you may come across that are not able to be tossed in. The only items that can not be put into one of our clean & green bins are hazardous waste materials, or liquids.

Don't Create A Road Block For Yourself
You're almost there! You've consolidated your clutter into a general area, and sorted thru it to get an idea of what can or can't go into the dumpster. Now it's time to pick the ideal spot to place your dumpster rental so that you can fill it up and say your final farewells to the clutter for good. Make sure wherever you place it, you are able to access the double back doors. These will come be extremely handy when it comes time to loading up all those large & heavy unwanted items into the bin. The double back doors allow for easy walk-in loading, and a little foresight can save a lot of aggravation.

Protect Your Property 
With our property protection guarantee, we place protective boards under every dumpster rental prior to its placement onto your property. These protective boards not only evenly distribute the weight in the dumpster, but provide a protective barrier between the bin and the surface of your driveway.
Our equipment is designed to be residential friendly. This means that our bins not only take up less space, but can fit in narrow driveways and be placed snug up to your home and close to your project at hand.

Bin There Dump That can help you on your next home clean out or renovation project. Just give us a call and we'll be happy to answer any questions and schedule your rental.

Thanks for reading!
