Senator Pat Bates (R-Laguna Niguel) was an early supporter of MRC’s Bye Bye Mattress program. Bates partnered with MRC to host a mattress recycling collection event at Vista High School in her district. She was a vocal supporter of recent legislation to expand MRC’s already successful statewide mattress recycling network in Calif.
Senator Steven Bradford (D-Gardena) has received high ratings from environmental justice organizations and recognition from his colleagues for his commitment to recycling and sustainability. He served as a program ambassador at Inglewood’s 2019 Earth Day event, the city’s largest to date.
“We applaud these leaders for advancing environmental stewardship and recycling initiatives in support of a greener California,” said MRC Managing Director Mike O’Donnell, who presented the awards.
