How Can I Get Rid of an Old Mattress?

How Can I Get Rid of an Old Mattress

When you’re all packed and ready to go move in to your new home, it’s likely you’ll be leaving a lot of old furniture behind, including that moldy old mattress that’s been with you forever.

There’s no way you’re taking that along with you, as you have a brand new bed waiting for you in a new place, and it’s not as if you can just leave it on the sidewalk or out on the front yard for garbage services to pick it up.

So how can you get rid of an old mattress? You can either break it up yourself, donate it (if it’s still in usable condition), or call your neighborhood waste management authority or local recycling services to have it picked up and come dispose it for you.

How Can I Break Up My Old Mattress?

Many states now require you to recycle your old mattress. Nevertheless, a good number of mattresses still end up in landfills where about 12 million of them end up each year.

Breaking up that old mattress yourself would entail:

1. Cutting the cord with a seam ripper or utility knife, then pulling the cord from the sides

2. Peeling and pulling the sides of the mattress away

3. Removing the top layer of fabric off the mattress

4. Gathering the fabric and fluff from the mattress interior

5. Removing the bottom layer of fabric

6. Breaking up the springs with a bolt cutter

Where Can I Donate My Old Mattress?

As long as your mattress is still in a fairly usable state, you can get in touch with several groups from around your neighborhood to come pick up your mattress for you.

1. The Salvation Army will usually come pick that up for you for free: https://www.salvationarmy.org/ 2. Goodwill will accept mattresses that are in relatively good condition: https://www.goodwill.org/ 3. Habitat for Humanity: https://www.habitat.org/ 4. Bye Bye Mattress: https://byebyemattress.com/ 5. Posting an ad on Craigslist might also help: https://craigslist.org/

6. Your local furniture store might sometimes provide this service, especially if you’ve bought the mattress from them in the first place.

7. Your local shelters may want to take in your old mattresses as well.

Which Neighborhood Waste Management Authorities Should I Call?

Contact your local municipality, sanitation department, or garbage collector and ask them how they deal with old mattresses like yours.

Tips for decluttering your workspace

Whether you work in an office or at home, a cluttered workspace is a nightmare. It negatively affects your overall performance and productivity.

With clutter everywhere, you lose focus, get easily distracted, and you are unable to process information. The clutter competes for your attention, disrupts your workflow and gives you visual stress—all of which makes it hard for you to accomplish tasks at hand.

Meanwhile, a clean and organized workspace is nice to look at and can have positive effects and benefits to you and the way you work.

It boosts your management, productivity and confidence level towards work. It also reflects your work ethics and professionalism.

To be able to free yourself from distractions and work better, maybe it’s time to clean, declutter and organize your workspace.

Learning and keeping your desk organized can lead to great work results and make you feel good about yourself and your job.

Here, we’ve listed some tips to maintain a clean and organized desk.

Identify the things you are commonly using.

Make a list of the all the things you commonly use. In knowing the commonly used items, set a timeframe like one or two weeks. At the end of the timeline, you have probably identified the things you need regularly and those that need to go in the drawers or in the trash.

Clear out your desk.

If you have the time, purge your workspace. It is easier to organize your desk if nothing’s on it. Remove everything from your desk, drawers, filing system, and cabinets and work your way from there. Decide what should be kept and what should be thrown out.

Keep “cleaning your desk” on your to-do list.

Make a regular reminder to clean out your desk. Setting a schedule for this means you are prepared for it and it will not interfere with your workflow.

Clean your space.

You may have cleared your desk of the clutter, but something is still amiss. By cleaning, we mean wiping down all surfaces, brushing off the dust on your keyboard, washing your seat cushion, etc.

Sort your items.

Once you’ve cleared out your desk, it’s time to organize your items according to what stays and what goes. Make sure you keep only those that help in your daily tasks and those that have a purpose. For those that need to be thrown out, maybe you can donate them instead of ending up in junkyards.

Make labels.

It’s easier to find things when they are appropriately labeled. With labels, you won’t need to waste time looking for the item you need.

Return the items after using them.

Remember to put the things back where you found them. This way, you know where to find them when you need them. This helps keep you organized and clutter-free.

Throw away the unnecessary items.

After cleaning out your workspace, you end up with junk that needs to go. Once you’ve sifted through which items can be donated and thrown away, put them in boxes according to recyclables and non-recyclables. This way, it would be easier for you to dispose of them.

If you’re in Sacramento and need help in disposing of your junk, we at Junk King can help you. We’ll help you keep your workspace clean and clutter-free so you can do more with your time. Check out this list of items we take.

Top Items People Get Rid Of

In this day and age, people are not so fond of repairing broken items anymore. Because sometimes, it’s easier to replace an item than to go the extra mile of repairing them. However, getting a new item is not the problem, it is the disposing of the old broken item that becomes difficult. Luckily, there are junk haulers like Junk King of Sacramento who specialize in junk removal and would gladly take these items off your hands.

But, what are the top things that people usually get rid of? We made a list of some of them and why they are the most common. Are you looking to get rid of some of these?

FURNITURE 

Depending on the material of your furniture, some can actually last you a lifetime. But, depending on taste and lifestyle too, furniture can come and go just as fast as the change of seasons.

The most common items you can find being hauled in Junk King trucks are sofas, lounge chairs, dining tables, cabinets, and anything that is more than five feet tall and wide. These can include electronic appliances like television sets, microwave ovens, and refrigerators. It’s actually surprising the amount of broken furniture junk people have.

 SCRAP WOOD 

This is common in construction sites, whether you are building or restoring a space, scrap wood will definitely need to be hauled because of the sensitivity of handling it.

With proper dismantling, the wood can still be donated to charities. This does not only help those in need but also the environment. Using scrap wood is a form of recycling that goes a long way for Mother Earth.

SCRAP METAL 

Scrap metal needs special handling because it is a dangerous material that can injure someone if not handled correctly. Items like this usually come from repairs on a roof or a fence.

Since metal can develop rusts, if someone is not careful they can cut themselves while handling it and tetanus bacteria is just a heartbeat away. That is why experts are needed when hauling these items from your yard. To make sure that no one is hurt from incorrect handling of scrap metal, get yourself an expert who can handle it properly for you.

VOLUMES OF CLUTTER 

Items for hauling do not always have to be huge and bulky, sometimes volume is the challenge. For bookworms who love to collect books, disposing tons of them at a time can be a taxing task, hence some help is necessary. Other stuff like kitchenware that can fit the bin but is just overwhelming in number can also be hauled for your convenience.

As you can see, Junk King Sacramento has plenty of experience hauling the most common items people get rid of and more. If you have junk that you need to be hauled, give us a call! You deserve a junk free life!

Random and Weird things People Throw Away

We all have our reasons for throwing things away, but some people take reason to a whole new level by getting rid of some of the weirdest things. In this article, we will discuss some of the random things that have been hauled away by Junk King Sacramento.

1. FURNITURE

Whatever is running inside your head when you hear the word furniture, yes, we have hauled that up. Some of them looked like they have been used for only a few months and the reason for throwing them out was that “the color is out of style” or “the design is too outdated for the new interiors”. Some may say it’s crazy, right? Whatever furniture that is, if it does not fit inside your bin, it does on the Junk King truck.

Imagine a Victorian-era salon room set complete with mirrors and candle holders being called up for hauling because the design is too old, or a huge king size bed to be thrown away because the color does not fit the new painting by the headboard.

2. ELECTRONICS

Electronics are the next big problem of a world that is transitioning from manual to automatic. Every year, television sets get bigger and bigger with better image quality and other features leaving models from five years ago too old for a typical American home.

The same goes for refrigerators that are not Euro4 evaluated or washing machines that are not using power-friendly motors. All these have to be replaced depending on the taste of the owners.

Sometimes, our team even picks up 60-inch television sets because the unit is not able to adapt to the recent graphics upgrade of a game console.

Other times, there are refrigerators for hauling because the family upgraded to a two-door unit that comes with water dispensers by the door.

3. CAR PARTS

There’s no denying that car parts and components are expensive. But some people just don’t mind. There are calls to pick-up perfectly new car wheels and rims. They are being disposed of because the owner decided to get a new set.

Other times, there are bumpers that have to be replaced because of accidents and there is no way that old ones can still be attached to the body. One of the most bizarre is a call that requested us to pick up a passenger side car door and a trunk of a car that practically looked new.

4. AN ENTIRE LIBRARY

We know that bookworms will always want more books than they can read. Sometimes, to make room for more reading materials, they discard the really old outdated ones.

It’s no surprise when we received a call asking us to pick up some books. At first, we thought that the books would probably fit in the regular bins but when they said volume is the problem, we came to check it out

And yes, an entire library was discarded and loads of bags containing books were set for pick up.

Some companies might think your items are too big or too small to call for junk removal. At Junk King, we don’t discriminate. If your clutter doesn’t fit in your bin, call Junk King Sacramento and we would be happy to take it off your hands!

Tips for Decluttering Before Spring

Spring is the season for new beginnings— to breathe new life to untouched spaces, create more room for movements, and let go of once loved possessions that no longer inspire creativity or happiness. But it is never easy to identify which items to let go of first during our spring cleaning. We know you’re thinking that too. So, we have decided to help you get started with the process of decluttering.

To make it easier, here are the top three rules you need to remember for a successful decluttering process before spring begins:

Sort Out

First is sorting out your things. You will probably want to keep 98 percent of your things. However, some things just have to go; so, to help you determine which ones are the first to go, you have to SORT IT OUT. You can organize this process by labeling two sides of your floor. The left side will be for things that have to go, while the right side is for things that you will be keeping.

If you are looking at a pile of clothes, start trying them on. If your pants don’t fit anymore, you might want to put that on the left side of the floor. The same goes for books. If you have not touched that copy for more than two years and is not really a favorite, you might want to consider giving it a new home. As for shoes, if those stilettos are hurting your feet when wearing them, ask yourself if the blisters are worth it. Lastly, there are mementos that we keep during travel or special occasions. While it is difficult to keep everything, leave a few that you really want to keep.

 Throw Out 

After the initial sorting out, this might be the hardest part – THROWING OUT. Commit to your goal of decluttering your space. Clutter will stay if you only move it from one corner to the other, so all things on your left pile must go. At first, it will feel like you wasted so much money, time, and effort letting your things go, but in the end, you will have gained your space back for other activities and new things.

Throwing out doesn’t have to be a guilty scene. During your sorting, identify what items can be donated to organizations. That way, your hard-earned money is not wasted and you are able to contribute to a good cause.

Wipe Out 

Now that you have the space free, the next step is to clean the area. This means you have to sweep, vacuum, and overall clean the portion of the space you just freed. Picking up dust will also save you from allergies. Vacuuming will suck all unholy elements left by critters where the clutter was stocked, and waxing will help prevent termites (if the area is dominantly wood) from ruining your space.

If you’re worried about throwing out big items, you don’t need to worry because there are junk removal services that you can hire to help you with your spring cleaning. Junk King Sacramento is a name you can trust. We can help get rid of your junk without having to worry about it yourself.

So, what are you waiting for? Pick up your phone and give us a call at 1-888-888-5865 (JUNK)! We would be happy to help you with all of your junk removal needs!

Elk Grove Junk Removal

“We’re trying to address the conception that there are only rooftops and big-box stores in Elk Grove.” That is what city spokeswoman Christine Brainerd, head of the new tourism campaign, told a local news station.

While those attractions are being developed the focus is on Old Town Elk Grove with events like a monthly food-truck festival.
