The Used Mattress Recovery and Recycling Act (Public Resources Code sections 42985-42994) requires a mattress recycling organization to submit a mattress recycling plan to CalRecycle for CalRecycle’s approval. The mattress recycling plan must be designed to establish a convenient and cost-effective program to reduce illegal dumping, increase recycling, and substantially reduce public agency costs for the end-of-life management of used mattresses. Mattress Recycling Council (MRC), a nonprofit mattress recycling organization established by mattress manufacturers, renovators, and retailers, designs and implements the mattress stewardship program described in its plan. Since 2015, MRC has collected and managed used mattresses in California by establishing public no-cost drop-off sites, funding the collection of illegally dumped mattresses, and coordinating with retailers to offer pickup of used mattresses when new mattresses are delivered to consumers. On January 9, 2023, MRC submitted to CalRecycle a new mattress recycling plan, titled Used Mattress Recovery and Recycling Plan. CalRecycle approved the plan on March 29, 2023.
