What is the mattress recycling fee?
In 2018 a law passed in California, Connecticut, and Rhode Island mandating all retailers to collect a small fee at check-out for each mattress sold. These fees are intended to fund recycling efforts in each of these states. The Mattress Recycling Council (MRC), a non-profit organization established by the mattress industry, manages the program. The MRC utilizes a network of organizations to effectively pick up, transport and recycle old mattresses within the new government regulations. To learn more about the initiative, visit mattressrecyclingcouncil.org.
