Strengthening Oregon’s Environment One Mattress at a Time
In March 2022, Gov. Kate Brown signed SB 1576 creating a statewide mattress recycling program for Oregon. MRC was created by the bedding industry to serve as a mattress stewardship organization and is currently preparing a program plan for Oregon’s Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ).
Those in the mattress industry should review obligations and register
The law is similar in structure to MRC’s existing state programs and requires that retailers, manufacturers, importers, distributors and renovators of mattresses for sale in Oregon register their business with a mattress stewardship organization. MRC encourages these entities to review their obligations and register with MRC as soon as practical at MRCreporting.org.
Those in the solid waste and recycling industries can respond to surveys and RFPs
MRC is collecting information from solid waste facilities and other interested locations that would like to serve as a mattress collection site for residents in their area. If you would like to be contacted by our Oregon Program Coordinator about participating as a collection site, submit your contact information via our service provider interest form. To learn more about collection site benefits, expectations and requirements view our collection site information sheet.
