By October 2023, MRC will submit its program plan to Oregon’s Department of Environmental Quality.
The mattress recycling fee and program start date will be announced once MRC’s plan is approved.
We anticipate launching the program in 2024.
In the meantime…
Those in the solid waste and recycling industries should check in frequently as we have started the process of connecting with stakeholders and building our network of collection sites, transporters and mattress recyclers.
We are currently collecting information from locations interested in serving as a collection site. Complete this survey by April 28. To learn more about collection site benefits, expectations and requirements view this collection site information sheet.
We also issued a Request for Proposals to collect information from parties interested in providing mattress recycling services in Oregon. Completed applications are due May 19.
We are also preparing to issue an RFP for transporters soon. If you would like to be on the mailing list, submit your contact information via our service provider interest form.
Those in the mattress industry should become familiar with all of their company’s obligations, visit MRCreporting.org to register their company or update their existing profile, and stay tuned for when the fee and start date are announced.
