After finding a company that you feel comfortable with call their scheduling department or order online and set up an appointment. A reputable company will give you a time window that they will be there and will call ahead to let you know when they are on their way. These are little things to make the experience better for the customer. 3 More often than not especially in Indiana you will not be able to donate these items nor mattresses. This is the case because second hand mattresses are notorious for passing on second hand bed bugs. So it is now becoming standard that these items have to be disposed of; worry not they can however be recycled. In Indianapolis we take them to a recycling center called DAO and are at least able to make the customers happy about the recycling element rather than the mattresses ending up in the dump or landfill.
