As part of my ongoing project to clean out my attic, today I donated our old crib mattress to Household Goods Recycling of Massachusetts (HGRM).
The mattress was in good shape and could definitely benefit someone else, so I was thrilled when I found out HGRM accepts mattresses. The non-profit organization collects used goods and distributes them to families in need; families are referred by social service or government agencies.
Donating to HGRM is easy. Read their donation guidelines. They accept a lot of household items that other organizations don’t, like mattresses, toddler beds, TVs and air conditioners.
- Drop off items at their warehouse in Acton. Just drive up to the doors around the back and there will be a crew of people helping to unload your items and issuing you a receipt on the spot. I was done in less than 10 minutes!
- Call HGRM to pick up your large furniture or appliances, but read the guidelines first.
