I need to get rid of or donate an old mattress. I am told that Goodwill does not accept used mattresses.
The mattress looks very good, BTW...

Does anyone have suggestions?

Unfortunately, because of bedbugs, places like Goodwill no longer accept mattresses. We took our last one to the local dump but a friend of ours put theirs on the curb with a FREE sign the night before when they knew a neighbor was having a garage sale in the morning and it was gone when they went to get the paper.

You also can call the city for a special trash collection, since mattresses don't fit into the Herbie trash containers the city provides.

But first - check with the Hope Center and the Catholic Action Center. Perhaps they might be interested.

Thanks, I'll do that!
In my original post, I neglected to state that I live in an apartment complex, so curbside bulk trash pickup by the city is not an option...
