Mattress manufacturers and retailers urged to attend Las Vegas seminar on complying with state mattress recycling laws

Mattress Recycling Council logoThe Mattress Recycling Council, formed by mattress industry trade group the International Sleep Products Association, based in Alexandria, Virginia, will host a Las Vegas Market seminar, Tuesday, Aug. 4 at 1 p.m. (Building B, 16th floor), for retailers, manufacturers and other market attendees.

The discussion will cover California, Connecticut and Rhode Island mattress-recycling laws and other topics.

It is especially important that mattress manufacturers and retailers doing business in those three states attend this session, the MRC said in a news release.

MRC leadership will share highlights of the program plans that the group submitted to California and Rhode Island state authorities earlier this month, provide updates on the implementation of Connecticut’s program, answer questions about each state’s law, the industry’s obligations and the consequences of non-compliance, and introduce new resources that MRC has developed to help the industry comply with the law and communicate to customers.

“Mattress manufacturers, importers and retailers all have a role in this program’s success,” said Ryan Trainer, ISPA and MRC president. “If you aren’t complying with these state laws, you run the risk of not being able to sell your products in these states. We urge market attendees to join us to learn the latest information about how these laws affect their business.”

Nonprofit MRC is responsible for developing efficient, cost-effective and consumer-friendly mattress recycling programs for all three states. For additional information about state implementation timelines and the latest legislative developments in mattress recycling, visit
