Mattresses are just about the bulkiest item a consumer can dispose of.  he good news is that mattresses contain valuable materials like steel.

Hauling and disposing of a mattress on your own is expensive and can easily eat up an entire day. Mattresses contain synthetic materials which can cause dangerous chemicals to be leaked into the air and water when you dump a mattress.

Mattresses cause dangerous air pockets that fill with flammable, toxic gases because mattresses tend to be bulky and don’t compress very well. Whether you are replacing an old, worn out mattress or are treating your bed to an upgrade, you really want to avoid illegally dumping your old mattress or sending it to the landfill.
