If you landed on this page, you most likely googled “How To Get Rid of a Mattress in Toronto“. There are actually many free ways depending on where you reside and who takes care of your garbage disposal.
Houses and multi-unit dwellings will have the city of Toronto coming directly to pick-up and process garbage on a designated day. The city makes it very easy to throw away old mattresses due to concerns of bed-bugs, and other hygienic issues so they will pick it up for free on any major garbage day.
You can simply leave your old mattress at the curb on your designated garbage day.
Condos and apartments buildings in Toronto provide their residents with the same large item disposal that home owners receive. While it may not be as frequent and you may only be able to bring your mattress to the garbage room on specific days, all condominiums and apartments in Toronto will allow their tenants to dispose of mattresses and other large pieces of furniture by simply bringing it to the designated garbage room/area.
Most of the time you just want to dispose of your old mattress, however, if it’s still in good condition and you think someone else may benefit from a cheaper second-hand sleep, there are ways to sell or donate your mattress through local charities or sell it in an online marketplace.
