Sleep Easy with Professional Mattress Disposal

After a long day of work nothing quite compares to slipping off into sleep on a comfortable mattress. How clean is your mattress really, though, and is mattress disposal something that you need to consider?

The truth is that mattresses have been called a breeding ground for all kinds of harmful bacteria. An average mattress – around 1,500 square feet – can collect dozens of pounds of dust every single year as well as mold, microbes, and fungi. Yuck!

The Sleep Council recommends to people that they consider mattress disposal and replacing their old mattress with a new one about every eight to ten years. Your mattress gets less comfortable and loses its support over time in addition to collecting a lot of nasty stuff.

Mattress Disposal That’s Safe, Quick, and Effective 

Mattress DisposalProfessional mattress disposal revolves around your schedule and remains the safest way to get rid of cumbersome mattresses. The pros at Junk King can whisk your mattress away in their company truck; your municipal trash service probably can’t say as much.

The state of California was actually the third state in the country to implement a mattress recovery and recycling effort for old mattresses. Junk King is committed to partnering with local recycling efforts to keep old mattresses in circulation in any way possible.

Old mattresses are much more recyclable than most people presume – between 85% and 95% of your old mattresses components can be recycled and given new life. As estimated twenty million retired mattresses wind up at incinerators and landfills every year in the United States, and that number represents a huge waste of resources!

Junk King’s mattress disposal experts realize that mattresses contain recyclable components like steel, wood, cotton, and foam. The natural fibers that your old mattress is made out of can be cleaned and repurposed, and the foam of your old mattress can be turned into carpeting material for someone else.

 Mattress Disposal: You Have Options 

When it comes to eco-friendly mattress disposal, you have more options that you probably think. Instead of renting a truck and going it alone, why not have your old mattress taken off your hands and given to a local charity, homeless shelter, or thrift store that would be happy to take it?

Even though the Sleep Council says that you should get a new mattress about every eight years or so, you might be surprised at how much new life you can give an old mattress with a mattress topper or comforter.

Call or email Junk King and find out how you can go about recycling your old mattress or making sure that it gets into someone else’s home and provides the foundation for a few more years of restful sleep. You’ll sleep easy knowing you’re doing the right thing and keeping 95% recyclable material out of a landfill.

Private companies, non-profits, and eco-friendly mattress disposal companies like Junk King have actually jumped in to fill a void in the industry: often neither your mattress manufacturer nor your municipality will remove and safely recycle your mattress for you.

A good recycling plant - and there are plenty in California - can recycle 90% or more of your old mattress. Many hospitals take aged, yet still clean and well-kept, mattresses too.

The convenient thing is that you can do the right thing and go about mattress disposal in an eco-friendly way simply by booking a mattress disposal appointment with Junk King. Why risk injury or worry about how you’re going to get a clunky mattress down a flight of stairs. Call, text, or book online today for mattress disposal on your schedule.

Junk Removal Tips for a Better, Simpler Life

“Human beings can only truly cherish a limited number of things at one time.” — Marie Kondo

Junk Removal You might not think of any of your stuff as “junk,” per se. Yet the things cluttering your home that never actually get used are junk indeed. While it’s obvious that you would want to call for junk removal to clean out a storage unit, abandoned rental property, or a garage full of trash, you can also ask our team to do the heavy lifting for cleaning and decluttering your home.

Just Say No to Hoarding

We all have hidden piles of junk. Even the tidiest house has a closet or a corner of the attic dedicated to stacks of old papers, clothes we will never wear again, and other stuff we never bothered to get rid of. Hire a junk removal service to jumpstart your cleaning efforts without needing to lift a finger!

And if you or someone you love has developed an actual hoarder situation, Junk King can help in a courteous and professional manner. Our junk removal team reduces your stress levels during the cleanup by working quickly and taking only the items you have identified for removal.

Live a Minimalist Lifestyle

True minimalism can be more fantasy than reality, but wouldn’t it be nice to have less clutter, cleaner surfaces, and more space to move around in your home? Ask a local junk removal company to remove any unwanted items. Usable stuff will get recycled or donated, so there’s very little waste.

Consider getting basement or attic junk removal to make storage space. Then you can easily put away knick-knacks and unnecessary items to make your living areas more minimalist without actually getting rid of your favorite things.

Let Go of the Past

Breaking up is hard to do. When the time comes to get rid of the belongings your ex left behind, you shouldn’t be burdened with a monstrous chore. Heck, you might even want to get rid of the sofa or other shared items with bad memories lingering in them. Call for junk removal and you can wipe your hands of the past and move on.
