Thousands of mattresses are recycled each month in California, Connecticut and Rhode Island as a result of Bye Bye Mattress, the Mattress Recycling Council’s consumer-facing program.
Retailers in these states are eligible for no-cost recycling through Bye Bye Mattress. Here’s how to receive these services:
- California: MRC works with various recyclers throughout the state. Retailers must contact an MRC-contracted facility and make their own arrangements. Details about each recycler are at http://byebyemattress.com/california.
- Connecticut and Rhode Island: Contact Justine Fallon, MRC’s Northeast program coordinator, to make your no-cost recycling arrangements. In addition, retailers that collect a minimum of 50 units can receive free transportation. Email Fallon at firstname.lastname@example.org to get started.
- Help your customers recycle, too: Bye Bye Mattress also is successful because of partnerships with municipalities and solid-waste companies. Hundreds of landfills, solid-waste transfer stations and public works yards now are accepting discarded mattresses from the public for free.
