This position will perform various tasks required to maintain and expand the Mattress Recycling Council (MRC) program in designated parts of California. The ideal candidate will reside in Orange County, San Diego County, or Riverside County.
About the MRC
The International Sleep Products Association (ISPA) created the MRC, a non-profit, to design and implement mattress recycling programs pursuant to mattress recycling laws enacted in California and two other states. MRC's objectives are aligned with these laws: to promote and encourage the proper recycling of mattresses at end of life.
Scope of Work:
In 2013, California enacted mattress recycling laws creating the statutory framework to fund the collection, transportation and recycling of discarded mattresses. California's mattress recycling program began December 30, 2015. Important information about the California program is described in the state's mattress recycling law (SB-254, as amended, and SB-1274).
MRC has designed the California mattress recycling program to meet the requirements of the law, regulations and program plan. To fund the program, retailers collect a $10.50 per unit fee from the sale of each mattress sold in California. Those fees are remitted to MRC and the fees pay for transportation, recycling, consumer education, enforcement and program administrative costs. To consumers, the program is promoted as Bye Bye Mattress (www.byebyemattress.com).
