As of December 30, 2015 for California, May 1, 2015 for Connecticut, and May 1, 2016 for Rhode Island, state law requires retailers to collect a recycling fee on each mattress and boxspring that is sold.
The state approved the amount of the fee, which is not set or controlled by individual retailers.
The fee funds the state’s recycling program, which is administered by the Mattress Recycling Council. Visit byebyemattress.com to learn more or contact the Mattress Recycling Council via the information provided with your receipt. Click here for details.
