ISPA Commends Connecticut Legislation on Mattress Recycling

While the International Sleep Products Association (ISPA) continues to pursue federal legislation, it commends the Connecticut Senate for reaching a compromise on legislation that would create a state-wide used mattress recycling program.

“We were able to reach a compromise with the Connecticut legislature on the mattress recycling bill. However, ISPA firmly believes that the best approach to efficient and legitimate mattress recycling lies in federal legislation. A federal recycling program would permit efficiencies and economies of scale that are not possible at a state or local level, applying consistent collection and processing practices across the country, that would benefit all parties concerned by driving down recycling costs for both consumers and manufacturers while also increasing recycling rates,” said ISPA President, Ryan Trainer.

The bedding industry association is continuing to advocate for federal legislation with the goal to build a mattress recycling solution that is efficient for both consumers and businesses. To create a program that operates most efficiently, ISPA believes that this can be best achieved.
