GLRPPR Sector Resource: Advancing Mattress Stewardship: A How-To Guide

Title:
Advancing Mattress Stewardship: A How-To Guide

Abstract:
This how-to guide has been written to provide fundamental guidance and map out best practice strategies for setting up effective mattress stewardship programs. Its primary audience is state and local governments who play a role in setting policies, purchasing mattresses and related services (e.g., for state educational institutions and for hotel guests), and collecting discarded mattresses. This guide outlines several actions that government representatives can take to advance mattress stewardship, whether through legislated or voluntary programs.

This document will also be valuable for other stakeholders involved in the life cycle of mattresses, such as manufacturers, consumers, retailers, universities and colleges, hotels, healthcare facilities, transporters, mattress processors/recyclers, and environmental groups. Like government officials, these other stakeholders also have a responsibility -- and with EPR laws, a legal obligation -- to reduce the burden of discarded mattresses on the communities they serve and live in
