Bye Bye Mattress: 3 million recycled

Bye Bye Mattress, the stewardship program run by the Mattress Recycling Council (MRC) in Connecticut, California, and Rhode Island, has recycled 3 million mattresses - over 46 million pounds of steel. The Record (Stockton, CA) has a thorough article, with video and photos, on mattress recycler DR3, jobs, and the MRC California program. In states without mattress product stewardship laws, most unwanted mattresses are landfilled.
