When it's time to replace your mattress, you might wonder what you should do with your old one. If it's in decent shape, you should try to find a friend or family member who needs or would be willing to take it, since most nonprofits do not accept used mattresses. But if it's in bad shape and ready to be disposed of, the good news is that it is recyclable. Approximately 90% of the materials used to make a conventional mattress can be recycled. To find a recycler near you, just visit the website byebyemattress.com and enter your zip code to find local drop-off facilities near you.
