How do you destroy a mattress?
Take apart your mattress yourself by cutting around the perimeter and peeling away the cloth. Remove the foam and soft materials and roll them into a compact bundle for the trash, then use a saw to cut apart any wooden structures. The box springs and other metals can be taken to the recycling center.

Normally the removal of an old mattress is not part of our service with Amazon. If you provide your delivery zip code, we would be happy to see if the service could be provided in your area and the charges that may be involved. Thank you for your interest in our product.
Can a mattress last 20 years?
