  1. This is a far inquiry, but, Is there any place in Buffalo, NY; Tonawanda & No. Tonawanda, NY; & Amherst, NY; that anyone may know of who will take a (king size mattress and box spring set) for free? I was willed it in a divorce. It’s in plastic. Just want to get rid of it and the memories along with it. It is a set that you turn and toss on it and the other person will not feel it. It is also a $1300 set. I am having a difficult time getting rid of it. It’s located in Tonawanda, NY. I haven’t any pics of it yet. Any replies welcome. Thank you
