Oregon Mattress Recycling Bill Advances to Second Chamber; Maryland Recycling Measure Introduced

As noted on the last Insider, SB 1576, would require MRC to establish a statewide mattress recycling program in Oregon. ISPA has worked with various stakeholders for several years to develop this legislation and supports this bill. Last week, the Oregon Senate passed the bill, 18-7. SB 1576 is scheduled to be heard and voted on the floor of the Oregon House today. If the bill passed the House it will be sent to the Governor for her signature.

Separately, Maryland introduced its own mattress recycling legislation (AB 1226) last week.  ISPA looks forward to working with the bill sponsor and stakeholders to make changes to the language that address industry concerns.
