Donate/Recycle/Dispose/Resell? 26 Jul 2019 08:49 #1

Hi,

I also do not know how to post new messages here, or where to post on this subject.

I would like advice on how to donate or sell my mattress latex layer components. We have had an Obasan all-latex mattress that we hate, and have recently purchased pocket coil springs from Arizona Mattress to hopefully alleviate or discomfort. We have been very happy with this change, and are only repurposing the top comfort layer and possibly the zippered encasement.

So, now I have the other latex layers which we no longer need, and would like advice on what my options are for disposal/donation/selling. It would be a shame to waste the latex layers in land-fill. They come individually wrapped in zippered fabric that can be washed. And they are only 2 years old.

What we no longer need:
4" latex layers divided into 3 zones (head, middle, toes)
- 2x soft ILD 20-22
- 2x med ILD 32-35
- 2x firm ILD 38-42

4" base that we would like to replace with something less tall
1x med ILD 32-35
1x firm ILD 38-42

We also have a Holy Lamb wool mattress topper that we barely used and do not like the feel of 2.5" -3"

Any advice would be appreciated! We live in an apartment in NYC and don't have storage space for these components.

Hey mattress4life,

I moved this question to a new thread to maybe give it more focus on its own. I totally understand this is actually harder than if feels like it should be. And, you have such high-quality high-value materials!!!!

I have had success working with some homeless shelters in my area, and also with some battered women's shelters, these places were much more flexible than the Salvation Army.

As far as selling, it's tough, I really don't know of any ad/classified places outside of craigslist.

Hopefully, other consumers may have some ideas.

Thanks,
Sensei

I've been trying to sell a Talalay topper for several weeks with no luck. I've tried Craigslist and Facebook marketplace. I'm going to try OfferUp and LetGo next. I guess latex pieces are too much of a niche item to sell quickly.

Hi April,

What are the specs? I'm trying to find something to help my girlfriend's back pain. Her mattress is far too soft, but it's only a year old and was really expensive. I'm hoping to add a firm latex topper to try to address the issue, but I'm going back and forth between considering a topper and a new mattress.

Also, whereabouts are you? I'm in Toronto, Canada.

Thanks,
Brad

What's the size of the bed it is coming from?

Brad123, I'm in California, so that probably wouldn't work.

Hey April,

I think the question was posed to you. What are the specs of the latex topper? Mainly.... size -queen/king?? density / ild? height/thickness?

Thanks,

May I ask what it was about the obasan that you didn't like? Did you use some of the latex on the Arizona springs?
