Disposing of Your Mattress

Buying a beautiful brand new mattress at Mattresses for Less is always incredibly exciting as well as one of the best decisions you can make. But what do you plan on doing with your old mattress once the new one arrives? Are you just going to throw it away? That has increasingly been the answer for hundreds of thousands of Houstonians every single year. As a result, Houston has a Texas-sized problem on their hands.

Everyone can agree that you don’t mess with Texas. And yet, thanks to the high volume of mattresses being disposed of every year, we have quite a big mess on our hands. Local dumps take in more than 600,000 used mattresses every year, causing a crisis of space for Houston’s landfills.

This is also beginning to have a serious effect on the environment. With each mattresses taking up about 32 cubic feet, multiplied by 600,000 per year, it’s easy to see why. Without immediate action, this issue could reach the tipping point and begin to seriously affect the lives of everyone in our community. Luckily, a solution is already currently in the works.

As one of the city’s leading mattress retailers, Mattresses for Less recognizes this problem and is ready to take action. They realize that if this situation is not addressed quickly and decisively, it can have serious ramifications for the whole community. To that end, Mattresses for Less is developing a solution that will benefit not just the environment, but their valued customers as well.
