Did you sneak it out to the curb one night? Put it next to the trash can? Dump it in a back alley like a wilted Christmas tree? Maybe you tried to be responsible and recycle it, but only to be told that places like Goodwill won’t take old mattresses.
Gone for Good will take your old mattresses and find them a new home FOR you. One of our favorite places for gently used mattresses is the Denver Housing Authority. DHA’s mission is to assist low-income families who unfortunately, can’t afford a mattress sometimes. It may not seem like much but we all know from personal experience that a good night’s sleep is vital to finding a job, learning new skills, and teaching our children how to excel.
Many of the people using DHA as a resource are sleeping on a floor or a couch. These conditions not only lead to cognitive issues but to physical issues as well. Poor sleeping conditions have been linked to misalignment of back and neck, digestive problems, and shoulder pain. Cognitive issues that stem from restless sleep and sleep deprivation include behavioral issues, lack of focus, loss of memory, delayed speed of response and short attention span.
Yes, your old mattress just sitting in the basement can help pull a family out of poverty. It can open new worlds and change the direction of their futures. Your unused, dust-collecting item is someone else’s unattainable treasure and Gone for Good is happy to help you provide that service.
Your old mattress can put a smile on the face of a family that desperately needs it to turn things around for themselves. All you have to do is call Gone for Good, your friendly junk-hauling service. We will verify that your mattress is bed bug free, stainless, odorless and then take it to the Denver Housing Authority. Remember how cool that mattress was when you first bought it? Imagine the smile on the face of a child who sees your old mattress as their ticket out of poverty.
Gone for Good is about so much more than just hauling away unwanted stuff. We are here to take that disposable junk and give it a new life while supporting great local charities and the families that actually need it.
