Every Los Angeles mattress store to pay for recycling old mattresses


Crowded landfill
The Mattress Recycling Council (MRC) is a nonprofit organization formed by the Sleep Products industry, primarily to oversee this initiative which aims to decongest landfills. Mattresses are made mostly of materials that don’t decompose, adding volume to already-crowded landfills. Discarded mattresses also serve as hiding places for bedbugs, rats, and other vermin.

Out with the old, in with the new
Apart from the recycling fee per mattress sold, sellers in California will also be obliged to transport the customer’s old mattress to a recycling facility. For top Los Angeles mattress stores like Glendale Mattress Central which carry a wide range of brands, this is a welcome development, given the impact on the environment.
