Tips for Mattress Disposal in San Francisco

Mattress Disposal


Whether you’re doing a little spring cleaning or clearing out your house for resale, disposing of bulky objects like mattresses can be a real pain. Unlike most furniture, mattresses generally can’t be left out on the curb, and you can incur some hefty fines for doing so. It’s important to dispose of your mattress the right way, and at Junk King San Francisco, we’re here to help. The quickest and easiest way to get rid of an old mattress, along with any other trash or furniture you’re clearing away, is to just give us a call and let our professionals do the work for you. However, if you’d prefer to do it yourself, here are a few easy tips to get you started.

Check the Tags


Remember that tag that all mattresses have, the one that tells you not to remove it? Believe it or not, there’s a good reason to leave that on. That’s the warranty tag, and checking it should be the first thing you do before disposing of your old mattress. Firstly, it’ll let you know if your mattress is still under warranty, and if you can get the company to send you a replacement for free. Some warranties also cover removal, which takes the whole problem out of your hands. If your mattress is still under a warranty that covers removal services, then all you have to do is give the company a call and let them handle the removal process. Otherwise, you’re going to have to take care of it yourself.



Recycle, Recycle, Recycle


Recycling your mattress is the best and most environmentally friendly way to get rid of it. Mattresses are made of almost entirely recyclable materials, from wooden frames to metal springs. These materials can be removed and reused for something else, so make sure you’re not just leaving your mattress in the dump somewhere. The only mattresses that can’t be recycled are wet, heavily stained, or infested with pests like bedbugs. Unless your mattress is crawling with bugs or covered in stains, you should be good to go.


At Junk King San Francisco, we pride ourselves in being a fully green and environmentally friendly operation. If you choose to have us haul away your mattress for you, the first thing we’ll do is take it to our sorting center to make sure it can be recycled. From there, we’ll take it to a recycling center to be taken apart and disposed of properly. The same goes for anything we haul away, whether it’s furniture, construction debris, or just plain old trash. If any part of it can be reused, we’re committed to making sure it will be.

Transporting Your Mattress


Once you’ve located a recycling center near you, all you have to do is actually get the mattress there. This is easier said than done since a mattress is big, bulky, and difficult to transport. Unless you have a truck or a good-sized van, you’re going to have to tie it to the roof of your car.


The first thing you should do is make sure you have enough rope. For a queen-sized mattress, you should have about 15 feet of rope to secure it to the roof of your car. It might seem a bit like overkill, but it’s better to be safe than sorry. Having a little extra rope hanging from your car is going to be a lot better than seeing the mattress fly off on the highway, after all.


Once you have the mattress on top of the car, wrap it with the rope both the short and the long way. You can secure the rope by running it under your car, or through the backseat and passenger’s side windows. Keep in mind that if you run the rope through a window, you won’t be able to open that door without untying the rope, so avoid the driver’s side! If you have ratchet straps, use those instead of the rope to make the mattress as secure as possible.


When driving, take it slow and try to avoid the highway if you can. Excess speed can cause the wind to become trapped between the mattress and the car, which creates some problems. If the wind is bad enough, it can even flip the mattress up and help it escape the ropes. Just keep things slow and steady, and turn on your hazard lights if you want to slow down even further.

Why Rent a Dumpster For Your San Francisco Remodel?

Junk King Dumpster


Whether you’re renovating the whole house or just doing a kitchen or bathroom remodel, any home improvement project is going to result in a ton of trash and debris. In many areas, San Francisco included, sending construction debris like wood, tiles, or glass is not allowed, which means you’ll have to find a different way to dispose of your leftover materials and junk. Even if you have a truck big enough to haul the debris away on your own, you’ll still need somewhere to bring it.


full service junk removal


For most homeowners, the best option for collecting trash is going to be renting a dumpster. This is especially practical if you rent directly from a junk hauling company, like Junk King. If you take advantage of our self-service dumpster rental service, not only will we bring the dumpster right to your home, we’ll also haul it away at the end of your project. Everything you put in the dumpster gets taken to our junk sorting center to be disposed of properly, and you’re saved the headache of figuring out where to bring it yourself. It’s easy, straightforward, and affordable enough to fit right into your remodeling budget.


Junk King MINI Dumpster Rental

Dumpsters come in many shapes and sizes, and it’s important to make sure you’re using the right one for your project. For most personal home improvement projects, large commercial-sized dumpsters are going to be way too big. You won’t need nearly all the space in a large dumpster, and leaving one in your driveway will make it difficult to find room to park your car or get in and out of your garage. However, there is an alternative to the industrial-sized containers most people imagine when they think of dumpsters.


Junk King’s MINI dumpsters are specifically designed for smaller, individual projects like home improvement. At only 7.5 feet wide and 11 feet long, a MINI dumpster can fit snugly in your driveway while still leaving plenty of room to get in and out each day. Don’t let the small size fool you, however – MINI dumpsters have more than enough room for the debris generated by your remodel, with 12 cubic feet of space. They’re also lightweight, easy to move, and feature specially designed polycarbonate wheels that won’t cause so much as a scratch to the surface of your driveway. Plus, with Junk King San Francisco’s unique pricing structure, you’ll only pay for the space you actually fill in the dumpster, making them cost-efficient for remodeling jobs of any size and scope.

Too Much Debris? Try Full-Service Junk Removal


Maybe your home improvement project has grown in scope, or perhaps you’re just aiming for something a little more ambitious than usual. Either way, if filling a MINI dumpster seems like more of a hassle than it’s worth, you can always opt for Junk King San Francisco’s full-service junk removal. The full-service option is even easier and more convenient than the dumpster rental and offers plenty of flexibility. All you have to do is give us a call, make an appointment, and then just wait for our junk removal professionals to show up and haul away anything you want us to take. We have experience handling pretty much anything a home renovation project might generate, including construction debris, furniture, old fixtures, and more.

Much like the dumpster rental, our full-service junk removal only charges you for the space in our truck that you actually use. That means the price tag scales neatly to the scope of your project, ensuring that you never have to break the bank for what should be a small and simple job. We never want you to feel blindsided by the cost of our services, which is why we offer four different ways to get a free, no-obligation estimate:

  • Text a picture of the trash you need us to haul away to 737-888-5865 and we’ll give you an estimate.
  • Or, you can always use our free online pricing tool for a quick and dirty ballpark estimate.
