"We were pleased to work with state officials to develop legislation that promotes the proper disposal of mattresses while keeping costs low and creating jobs." - Christopher Hudgins, ISPA VP Government Relations and Policy

Alexandria, VA (PRWEB) July 16, 2013

On July 15, 2013, Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee signed legislation into law that would create the nation’s second mattress recycling program. The International Sleep Products Association (ISPA) worked closely with Rhode Island Senate Majority Leader Dominick Ruggerio and House Environment and Natural Resources Committee Chair Representative Arthur Handy to craft legislation that will recycle used mattresses in Rhode Island. The legislation tasks mattress manufacturers in Rhode Island with creating an organization to responsibly collect and process discarded mattresses throughout the Ocean State.

“We were pleased to work with state officials to develop legislation that promotes the proper disposal of mattresses while keeping costs low and creating jobs,” noted ISPA Vice President of Government Relations and Policy Christopher Hudgins. “The Rhode Island law follows industry-supported legislation that recently passed in Connecticut and serves as a model for other states interested in tackling this important issue.”

The new law requires mattress manufacturers to propose a detailed plan for mattress recycling in Rhode Island by July 1, 2015. The program will create opportunities for all mattresses in Rhode Island to be recycled and will help combat the issue of illegally dumped mattresses.

Similar mattress recycling legislation is currently working its way through the California Legislature.

Rhode Island enacts mattress recycling law

David Perry -- Furniture Today, July 16, 2013

PROVIDENCE, R.I. — Rhode Island has become the second state to enact a mattress recycling program.

The state's governor, Lincoln Chafee, signed the bill into law this week. Neighboring Connecticut recently became the first state to adopt mattress recycling legislation.

Officials of the International Sleep Products Assn. said they worked with Rhode Island Senate Majority Leader Dominick Ruggerio and House Environment and Natural Resources Committee Chair Representative Arthur Handy to craft the legislation that will recycle used mattresses in Rhode Island.

The legislation charges mattress manufacturers in Rhode Island with creating an organization to responsibly collect and process discarded mattresses in the Ocean State, ISPA officials said.

"We were pleased to work with state officials to develop legislation that promotes the proper disposal of mattresses while keeping costs low and creating jobs," said Christopher Hudgins, ISPA's vice president of government relations and policy. "The Rhode Island law follows industry-supported legislation that recently passed in Connecticut and serves as a model for other states interested in tackling this important issue."

Where Do the Materials Go and What Are They Used For?
 
 What’s in a Mattress?
 
A mattress is made up of metal (mostly steel), wood, cotton batting, paper, fiberfill, urethane foam, and other miscellaneous textiles.
Cut-Away of Mattress
It typically has 9 pounds of cotton and 25 pounds of steel.  It's composition is roughly:
 
30% metal
38% cotton
10% foam
4 % wool shoddy

Overall these numbers vary, and continue to change as manufacturers adjust how they make beds and the materials they use to make them.
The wood, metal springs and cotton are removed from the mattress.  The remaining foam is usually torn up, although some recycling facilities are more sophisticated and utilize shredding machines to shred the foam. The wood is typically sold to wood chippers and used as a fuel source. The cotton and foam are sold to companies that use the materials for insulation and carpet padding. The steel from the metal springs is usually sold to steel recycling companies who melt it down to make new products.
 
There are quite a number of uses for a mattress, and a dedicated recycling facility can recycle up to 90 percent of the mattress.   Most mattress dismantlers make some money selling raw materials, but usually request a fee per unit to cover all the costs of recovering the maximum amount of materials.  In addition to conserving resources recovered through mattress recycling, landfill and incinerator operators will experience reduced handling and disposal challenges, and other businesses engaged in material processing or new product development will have access to the recovered raw materials.

Mattresses in Our Landfill

 

Ohio Mattress Recovery recycled over 1,000,000 pounds of mattresses.

Yes, it is true, Ohio Mattress Recovery and Recycling has surpassed the 1,000,000 pound goal we have set for ourselves. We have now set our sights for the 5,000,000 millioj pound mark. If your company is interested in purchasing green carbon offset credits call us for more details.If one were to assume that each of the 300,000,000 citizens of the United States had one full sized mattress and all these mattresses were to be disposed of side by side and end to end at one time - the area covered by these discarded mattresses would be about twenty percent of the surface area of the State of Rhode Island. Alternatively, this would require a landfill of over 300 square miles or a one-mile wide strip of mattresses running 300 miles in length. 100 mattresses stacked together and laid on their side would fill an olympic size swimming pool

Dumped mattress lands cash in trash in Israel

AFP/Getty Images/File–A file photo of a new mattress in San Francisco, California in 2009. A stash of cash landed in the trash…

THE CASE FOR DESTRUCTION AND RECYCLING:

1) Lost Revenue? Everytime a mattress or boxspring is sent to a rebuilder/refurbisher, it hurts mattress manufacturers and retailers. While many rebuilders/refurbishers claim to export their final product, in reality most are sold locally at a reduced price. As such, the rebuilt mattresses and boxsprings compete directly against the lower end units manufactured by most mattress manufacturing companies and sold by retailers in the United States.

 

Did You Know?

  • Each trailer of mattresses is the equivalent of two swimming pools of waste kept out of landfills.
  • The U.S. is the #1 trash-producing country in the world at 1,609 pounds per person per year.
  • The highest point in Ohio is "Mount Rumpke," which is actually a mountain of trash at the Rumpke sanitary landfill!
  • A 60-watt light bulb can be run for over 30 days on the amount of energy saved by recycling 1 twin mattress!
  • US steel recycling saves enough energy in one year to heat and light 18,000,000 homes!

Bed Bugs living in new or refurbished mattresses


After decades in obscurity, bedbugs have returned to the United States to take up residence in a place where they can live long-term, rent-free and have all the food they need -- in mattresses all over the country. These small, blood-******* pests sneak out during the night, feed, and then retreat. Sometimes the only evidence they leave behind are hideous welts running up arms and legs. The mattress business has been investigated-- specifically, reconditioned mattresses that are supposed to be stripped and sterilized, re-covered and sold for less than what you'd pay for a new one. What was found was shocking. Beneath new covers, filthy old materials were contaminated with urine, fecal matter and dangerous fungi, all of which can seep out through the cover over time. We also found a dead bedbug with its eggs. Orkin Pest Control Company now reports bedbug infestations in all 50 states
