Some donation-based companies offer free mattress pickup, such as the Salvation Army. People can go to the Salvation Army's donation website at SATruck.org to schedule free mattress pickups. Some Goodwill stores also offer pickup, so one can contact a local Goodwill to inquire about free mattress pickup services.
An individual on the Salvation Army donation website can schedule a pick-up by either clicking on the red Donate button on the top right-hand corner of the website or by entering a ZIP code into the Schedule a Free Pickup box. The visitor can then browse the list and choose the items and quantity that he wants picked up. Mattresses and box springs are listed in the drop-down menu. Website users then click Next to proceed.
The website provides a calendar showing available pickup dates that allows individuals to choose the dates that work for them. A space is also offered for a person to give specific instructions to the SA pickup driver. There is also a box of common instructions. After hitting the Next button, individuals then provide their home phone numbers and last names and conclude the process by hitting the Submit button, after which the Salvation Army gets in contact with them to pick up the mattresses.
