Free mattresses and mattress sets will be available beginning Wednesday in Arlington, a Craigslist user informs the public:

Starting on Wednesday after 11 AM I will have 11 king mattress sets and 3 full sized mattress sets to give away. These are FREE – you HAUL. No one on site will be able to help remove the mattresses or box springs. Bring someone to help you carry them if you cannot carry a King Mattress by yourself.

These beds are USED. As is condition. Some beds could have minor stains on them etc.

The address corresponds with the Americana Hotel, a classic piece of 1960s Crystal City architecture and the setting for a scene in the Ben Affleck classic State of Play. (H/t Kelsey D. Atherton.)
