The Mattress Recycling Council (MRC) is a nonprofit organization formed by the mattress industry to operate recycling programs in states that have passed mattress recycling laws.
More than five million mattresses have been recycled by MRC’s Bye Bye Mattress program in California.
Bye Bye Mattress is accessible, offering California residents no-cost opportunities to discard their used mattress. Statewide, 98 percent of all residents live within 15
miles of a Bye Bye Mattress collection site. There are more than 200 permanent drop-off locations and 100 collection events held annually. Many residents also have access to the program through retailer take-back and municipal curbside pick-up services. In addition, more than 200 other public and private entities participate through the Commercial Volume Program including mattress retailers, hotels and universities.
