If you aren’t able to do that, please clear a path for the drivers from where the mattress is through to your front door.

Thank you.My mattress or furniture is in good condition. Can you donate it to charity?
- What do you do with my old mattress and furniture?
- For mattress recycling and furniture recycling, we take it all apart and sort the pieces
A lot of companies claim to donate (or even to recycle) the furniture they collect, but if you are ever at a transfer station or landfill, you will see just how much furniture is being taken there for dumping by them. The sad truth is that there are not very many charities at all that accept used beds or furniture in Metro Vancouver and if they do, they are very selective for good reasons. There is almost zero demand for used beds and most furniture that people need to dispose of does not meet today’s standards/needs for re-using by charities. For that reason, we recycle (see top FAQ) all beds and furniture that come through our doors. On the rare occasion we receive furniture only (not beds) through our pick-up service that we know is suitable for re-use, then we do make the effort to donate it to someone in need. When that’s not possible, the recycling services we offer keep unusable old beds and furniture out of the landfill. We never, ever throw away furniture we accept for processing/dismantling. Please note that for commercial accounts that request and receive Certificates of Destruction from us, none of the above applies.
We had bedbugs. Will you still recycle our mattresses?Yes and no. If your mattresses were successfully chemically treated and sealed in plastic bags, and all the little critters are dead, then yes, we can still process the mattresses. Please let us know since special handling is required.Do you recycle metal too?Yes. Consider sending us anything metal you need to clear out, including but not limited to: bed frames, shelves, filing cabinets, metal appliances (except fridges), barbecues, bikes, furniture, pots, etc. Metal items dropped off at our facility are accepted free of charge. There is a $5.00 handling fee for metal items collected through our pick-up service.Can you provide references?Absolutely. Visit our testimonials page on our main website to see what some of our clients say about us. We’re proud of our great reputation and work hard to maintain it.Is there a maximum number of mattresses we can send to you for recycling?Nope, no minimum or maximum. And no extra surcharge for large quantities either – in fact, we encourage them.Do we need to make a delivery appointment?No, appointments are not required but advance notice of commercial shipments, especially large ones, is appreciated and makes for a smooth process for everyone.Do I have to be there when my mattress and furniture are picked up?No, as long as we have access to the item(s) and payment has been made, you don’t need to be there when we come by.
