Re: Mattress disposal Crete .

No she said she tried the charities and they would not take them ! She has 14 ! Ring the local dimos (council). They should be able to arrange collection of that lot but it may take a while! A friend who works for Chania dimos says that generally, a mattress (1 not 14!) left out by the bins will be...
