It varies by town. Most have some form of bulk trash pickup.

Is there another Simmons Beautyrest mattress that is the same as the Simmons Beautyrest Recharge Hybrid "Wildwood Crest" Luxury Firm mattress? I cannot seem to locate this one anywhere. I purchased one last summer and now I would like to buy another one in queen size. Thanks in advance for your help!

There are many options for the base. If you get the wire bed frame, you can add what's called a "bunkie board" to even out the support. I recommend having the gaps between the slats being no larger than 2 inches, and most good platform beds are around that. They just need to be rigid, and not flexible like the Ikea ones.

ALSO -- the metal frames are ugly and the cables are more than 3" inches apart. Please advise.

I bought a Leesa full size at your recommendation. I slept on it for the first time last night. It was lovely. However, it was also on the floor. My son-in-law is assembling the bed frame I purchased from IKEA at this moment. For the FIRST time I saw the notice on the Leesa website about NOT using flexible slats, which my IKEA bed frame has. I bought the Lonset slats. Leesa says the mattress should be on a flat surface. If using slats, they should be flat, non-flexible and three inches apart.You recommend using slats to allow air circulation. I couldn't find any slat beds with slats no more than three inches apart. I'm going to have knee replacement surgery tomorrow -- Sunday, July 20. I was hoping to come home to my new mattress and bed frame. My family can return the bed frame and/or slats while I'm in rehab. Can you recommend a solution? I will have access to email.
