Public Act 13-42, enacted in Connecticut in May 2013, requires the mattress industry to establish a mattress-recycling program in the state. To meet this requirement, the International Sleep Products Association created a nonprofit organization, Mattress Recycling Council. MRC serves as the organization required by the law to plan and implement that state’s mattress-recycling program.
Public Act 13-42 requires all mattress and mattress foundation producers, renovators and importers selling or distributing mattresses in Connecticut to join MRC by July 1, 2014, in order to continue selling mattresses in Connecticut.
If you have not already done so, you may join MRC by registering with the organization at www.mrcreporting.org. There is no cost to join, and registration information will only be used by MRC and the state to determine compliance with the requirements of the law. Failure to meet this requirement prohibits you from selling mattresses in Connecticut.
