You’re living in Brooklyn, and you need to get rid of your old bed, like, yesterday. Don’t freak out! We’re going to help you find easy mattress removal and junk disposal in the most populous NYC borough.
As the most populous borough of New York City, and the third most populous city in the United States, there are over 37,000 people per square mile living in Brooklyn. That’s a lot of people packed into one place!
With quarters closer than sardines in a tin, finding yourself needing removal and disposal of your bed can be incredibly stressful. Especially if it’s because you’re replacing your old mattress or box springs with a new bed that has already been delivered.
Chances are that if you live in Brooklyn NYC, you probably don’t own a pickup truck. It is also pretty likely that you’re not sure how to go about mattress removal and disposal, much less how to easily dispose of a mattress. So, what does that mean if you have something like an old box spring or mattress to dispose of?

Mattress Donation in Brooklyn
One of the easier options for getting rid of your junk is to donate it since you don’t have to worry about the hassle of recycling or proper disposal. Unfortunately, most donation centers in New York City won’t accept used mattresses or box springs.
There are a few local thrift stores and consignment shops in the Brooklyn area that will take your bed frame. You can try places like Habitat for Humanity’s ReStore retail store or Goodwill. Otherwise, you will need to call around and ensure the local organization accepts bed frames.
Make sure the bed frame is in good condition before donating. As a good rule of thumb, if you wouldn’t want it in your home, then it isn’t right to donate it.
If you don’t know how you’ll get your bed frame to a charity, don’t worry! A Brooklyn junk removal and disposal service like LoadUp can help make this an easy, pain-free experience.
New York City Trash Service in Brooklyn New York
The local trash in Brooklyn offers removal and disposal of bulky items, but it’s not easy. An appointment has to be set up in advance with the New York City Department of Sanitation. There can be a wait of up to 4 weeks for your pickup and removal to happen! Otherwise, you will receive a fine of $100 for leaving the mattress or boxspring on the sidewalk or curb.
All mattresses must also be enclosed in a special sealed bag in order to be picked up. Be careful, though. If your mattress or other bed items are in the street, extend in front of another property, or interfere with pedestrian traffic, they won’t be picked up and you’ll be fined.
If this happens, you can’t remove and dispose of a bed or mattress yourself because Brooklyn residents can’t bring bulk items to the City’s special disposal sites.
So how are you supposed to get rid of a mattress??
