Mattress Product Management
California’s Mattress Stewardship Program ensures used mattresses, box springs, and futons are reused, recycled, or properly disposed. CalRecycle oversees the program, which is run by Mattress Recycling Council (MRC), the nonprofit stewardship organization created by mattress manufacturers, renovators, and retailers.
- On December 5, 2023, CalRecycle will host a public workshop to solicit public comments regarding potential updates to the state mattress recycling baseline amounts and state mattress recycling goals. Additional information and documents for this workshop will be posted on the public notice.
- On September 27, 2023, CalRecycle’s director approved Mattress Recycling Council’s 2022 Annual Report and 2024 Program Budget.
