What to do with an old mattress?

I have a couple of old mattresses that I need to dispose of, where can I take them?

Re: What to do with an old mattress?

I'd give this number a call at the lower left of this page

There are usually specific rubbish pick up days that you may have to notify them in advance.

I''m not sure if this costs extra, but they will know.

I have called them before for carboard box pick up before.

Not sure if this helps, but I am sure that may be some less fortunate folks living in the area that would love to be able to get a mattress. Maybe check with the local Salvation Army... Just a thought...

Re: What to do with an old mattress?

Depends very much on the state of them, stains, etc. If they can't be given away you will need to take them to your local official refuse dump - check with your Commune or ask neighbours, they will know. In some areas you might be charged a small sum for disposal- and of course transport if you can't take them yourself.

Would one of them be good for my little camel?

Kleinbasel. I think they breed them there.

Re: What to do with an old mattress?

In Genf we have what we call the "voirie" or disposal service.You call them up and they come round on a tuesday and you just leave it outside. You don`t have the equivalent in Zuerich?
