The Mattress Recycling Council (MRC) is a non-profit organization formed by the industry to operate recycling programs (called Bye Bye Mattress) in states that have enacted mattress recycling laws. Connecticut’s program began in May 2015. Programs in California and Rhode Island are expected to begin in 2016.

If you are involved in the mattress/furniture industry or a recycling/solid waste professional and have questions about the MRC, contact us at:
