I need to dispose of my King size mattress as I cannot take it with me while moving out from Boston.
Having a really hard time trying to sell / donate it, despite it's in a great condition as was used only for a year.
Any tips on where to conveniently donate it?

Donating a mattress is near impossible given state and federal regulations.

I don’t know where you live / what kind of building, but the city of Boston will pick up a mattress on trash day. You just need to schedule a bulk item pickup in advance.

Have you joined any of the Buy Nothing groups on Facebook? There are hawks on those groups always ready to jump on anything. I bet you could get someone to take it off your hands if you're willing to give it away for free.
As far as donation places go, I don't know of any

Yea just leave it outside on trash day. City will take it

Agreed- I tried to find a way to recycle mine and all the suggested places I was seeing online had like $200 transport fees and then saw that apparently the city will recycle it when they collect it with trash... not sure if they actually do or if it ends up in dump but left mine by a dumpster with no issues 🤷🏻‍♀️

Have you posted on Craigslist as free? Had a lot of excitement over a 10 year old free mattress when I was moving to Boston.
