Having old mattress collected
About 1.5 million mattresses are thrown away every year. In fact, after 5 to 10 years, it is wise to replace your old mattress. This is not only beneficial for your back, neck and sleeping position, but it prevents your mattress from becoming unsanitary. But once you have purchased a new mattress, what do you do with the old one? You can have those picked up in case you don’t feel like driving to the dump, or don’t want to pay too much for a dumpster rental. We can often be with you within 24 hours.
