The Mattress Recycling Council has promoted Justine Fallon to operations manager to oversee the mattress recycling programs known as Bye Bye Mattress in California, Connecticut and Rhode Island.
Based in the Northeast, she is responsible for leading MRC’s day-to-day operations and managing the program coordinators as they work with their state’s municipalities, retailers, transporters and recyclers.
Previously, Fallon served as the Northeast program coordinator for MRC. She led the design, implementation and launch of Bye Bye Mattress in Connecticut and Rhode Island. Under her leadership, these state programs have flourished, and California’s program team has adopted many of her best practices. Fallon has more than 20 years of experience managing solid-waste and recycling programs, leading public education and outreach activities, and overseeing contracting and vendor communications for public and private entities.
“Justine is well-respected in the recycling industry and waste management arena and has demonstrated a robust understanding of governance and regulatory process and issues,” said Ryan Trainer, president of MRC and the International Sleep Products Association. “We are pleased to have her fully ingrained in our team and remain confident that she has the leadership abilities and project management skills to nurture all of our state programs.”
