Mattress removal and disposal can be quite a challenge, given the item’s bulky size. Fortunately, you can hire someone to handle your old mattress removal for a small fee. Whether you’re upgrading your furniture, moving out, or downsizing, our Taskers are here to help! Removal and disposal services include all types of mattress, from single to king-size.
Sell, donate, recycle, or throw away your mattress. Whatever disposal method you prefer, removalists can handle every step of the process. They can do everything from wrapping up your bed to dropping it off at the recycling centre. The most suitable disposal option will depend on the condition of your mattress and available disposal options near you. Below are the two main methods of mattress removal and disposal.
Mattress collection and delivery
If your mattress is in good condition, you may opt to donate or sell it. A removalist can collect your mattress and drop it off at the donation facility. Not sure where to donate your mattress? Removal experts can do the research and inquire for you, too! Simply include this request in your Airtasker listing. As an alternative, you could sell your mattress, and your Tasker can deliver it to your buyer.
If your mattress needs a quick clean before delivery, feel free to book a mattress cleaning service via our platform. Cleaning can give your mattress a new lease on life as it makes its way to a new home. Recycling may be another disposal option if your mattress is not in good condition - recyclable mattress materials include foam, fabrics, springs, scrap metals, and foundation wood.

Mattress removal and disposal
Mattress disposal is a specific service among other house clearance services on Airtasker. To dispose of a mattress, a removalist may take it to the nearest dump, or break it down and put it in rubbish bags.
However, you should try other disposal options before thinking of throwing away your mattress. Mattresses take up much space in landfills, and this item can contain toxic materials. But in some cases, mattress disposal may be your only choice. If your mattress is in poor condition, your removalist can help you dispose of your mattress correctly. Below are some tasks related to old mattress disposal:
Wrapping the mattress in plastic or a green bag (Note: Call your local streets & sanitations number to find out the disposal protocol in your area.)
Carrying the mattress to the side of the road or rubbish bin
Disassembling the mattress and placing the parts in large trash bags
Delivering the mattress to the local dump
Aside from mattress removal, Airtasker connects you to other rubbish removal services. If moving out is your reason for mattress disposal, you can also find additional moving help on our platform. Removalists can help you disassemble, pack, and transport your furniture for you.
