Trashy Questions for Us in Roseville CA

I often share affiliate links for products that I like. I may earn money or products from the companies mentioned in a post or from Amazon but it does not cost you extra. ūüėä

Once upon a time, when we had a computer that was getting old or a bed mattress that we no longer needed, we could call our local thrift store (I like Salvation Army and Goodwill). But nowadays, many thrift stores won’t accept some electronics or mattresses for varying reasons. So what DO you do with an item that won’t go in the trash cans we have from Roseville CA. Particularly when its an item that could conceivably be used or recycled? I have some terrific resources for Roseville CA recycling and trash needs!¬† And they offer a much tidier option than piles of items on front lawns. ūüėČ

Roseville CA Recycling and Trash Options by Kaye Swain Roseville Real Estate Agent

Huge but Useable or Recyclable Trash

Sleep Train

If you have a mattress and/or bedsprings and can transport it, the Sleep Train will accept used mattresses at their warehouse by Sleep Train Arena at 4400 East Commerce Way – Suite 200, Sacramento, CA. Be sure to call first – 877-246-2233.


They do accept specific electronics. Click here for their guidelines.

Give Away / Recycle Online Options

REGARDING ANY AND ALL OPTIONS LISTED – PLEASE use caution and care – give as little personal info as possible. Have someone with you or tell a neighbor what you’re doing. Don’t invite strangers into your home or garage. Be aware and BEWARE ūüôā


I am on NextDoor and you are all welcome to join that. You can CLICK HERE¬†to access the logon. If you’re not familiar with it – it’s kind of like an uber small, uber private Facebook. You have to prove you live in the neighborhood you are joining, you can only join your own neighborhood and up to 5ish other neighborhoods in your immediate area (they are much smaller neighborhoods than Roseville’s¬†neighborhood association areas). Once you are a member, you can chat with your nearby neighbors – introduce yourselves if you want, ask about lost or found pets, share crime alerts, etc. People also have the option to post sales, give aways, etc. So it’s a great way to find a new home for a useable item. I find it a very practical way to add to my collection of toys and clothes for my grandkids. ūüôā You can read more about it HERE and HERE. ¬†And yes, Roseville city and police department are on there with us (in a limited way – they can post but can’t see your posts so make sure if you know of a crime or problem to call 911 before you share it on NextDoor), which I really appreciate. Police departments have actually been able to use it to keep neighbors safe when a bad guy was on the loose in their area!

Next Door Inforgraphic for Kaye Swain REALTOR to share with Roseville CA readers


Freecycle is something¬†some of my friends¬†have done and enjoyed. You sign up and then¬†go through the list to see¬†what people are giving away. OR post something you want to give away. Someone else says, “I will take it.” You then put it outside for them with their name and they come and get it. There is an active group in Roseville.


Craigslist Рyou can post freebies on Craigslist. You go to the big city group nearest you. For Roseville, that would be Sacramento, CA. Then go to FOR SALE, and skim the items. There should be one that says FREE Рlike this!  Add your item. They give you the option to use their special email and for something like this, I would do that.


If you are on any neighborhood Facebook groups, such as Good Neighbors of Roseville, and are comfortable doing so, you could check the groups you belong to and ask if anyone wants your item(s) and can pick it up.
