    Selling a used mattress on Craig’s List is rather easy – and you make some money too.

    Glad you mentioned the cleaning issue – no one wants to get bed bugs. Actually, I think I’d have a difficult time using a “used” mattress but I love the fact that they can be recycled, didn’t realize that. Thanks for the very helpful information!

    Through recycling the mattress we have we make money from it, yes it’s true.
    I was interested with the cleaning instructions.
    It helps me clean my matters effectively.
    Thanks for the information…

    It is really important that more people start donating/recycling their old mattresses. Not enough people know how to properly clean them

    Ack… my ex just threw out our kids old bunk beds. I tried to talk him into donating or recycling them, but they were specially made for the bunks (which are dilapidated) and he didn’t think anyone else would get any use out of them. I hate throwing things like that out.

    Be careful – many places have restrictions on selling OR donating used mattresses. Sometimes even if you want to donate your mattress you may not be able to because of state regulations on bedding (see Massachusetts) or because of the recent ‘bedbug’ scares.

    I am using latex mattresses as they are made from eco friendly products because i am suffering from skin allergy.

    I am in need of a mattress. My air bed broke and I cant afford to buy a new one so I am sleeping on the floor. I try to find a free bed on craigslist but I am having trouble with people responding after I send them a email. If you or anybody you know has a mattress that can fit 2 I would appreciate it. you can email me at I check my emails everyday. thank you n God bless 🙂

  10. this is a great idea. while most of us wouldn’t consider buying or using a secondhand mattress it is easy to forget there are unfortunately many people out there that would be very grateful to receive a secondhand mattress.

    We never thought of doing this, cheers for the post.

    I confess frankly, recently my neighbor burned his mattress … I live in Russia, a different mentality. And the idea is certainly great.

  13. Elizabeth says:

    I think whoever takes the mattress should clean, that’s why people prefer to dispose in landfill. If I need that mattress I would clean it anyway. I would not trust someone elses cleaning. I am about to move and dont know what to do with mattress.
