(Alexandria, VA) – The Mattress Recycling Council (MRC) is hosting an informal mattress recycling Q&A session during the Las Vegas Market in the ISPA Lounge, Building B, Space 954 on Monday, July 28th between 3:00 and 5:00 p.m. Retailers and other market attendees are encouraged to drop by to get their questions answered and learn more about how the industry is preparing to implement new mattress recycling laws in Connecticut, Rhode Island and California.
The International Sleep Products Association (ISPA) has formed the MRC, a non-profit organization, to develop efficient, cost-effective and consumer friendly mattress recycling programs for all three states. The Connecticut program is expected to take effect in early 2015, and the California and Rhode Island programs will launch in early 2016.
“Mattress retailers and others tell us that they want an opportunity to talk about these laws and get their questions answered,” said Ryan Trainer, president of both ISPA and MRC. “We think this informal Q&A approach will encourage more one-on-one discussions, better fit Las Vegas Market attendees’ busy schedules, and help them get the details they need.”

The Mattress Recycling Council (MRC) is a non-profit organization that will develop and operate mattress recycling programs in California, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. In 2013, all three states passed laws requiring mattress manufacturers to develop programs to manage discarded mattresses.
