If your mattress is in usable condition, try giving it away on local Facebook sites, such as Buy Nothing Bainbridge or Free on the Rock, or try Craigslist or Freecycle.


Washington State has not yet passed a producer responsibility law that provides ease of accessibility to mattress recycling for the consumer, such as it has done for big electronics and light bulbs.

Drop-off mattress and box spring recycling is available at NW Furniture Bank in Tacoma for a fee.

For Seattle locations, go to Earth 911.


When it’s time for a new mattress, go eco-friendly with this buying guide .
