MASSRECYCLE is excited to be holding a mattress recycling demonstration event at the MA State House in collaboration with UTEC Lowell, with the support of Senator Donoghue from Lowell. A team from UTEC Lowell will be showing how to break down a mattress for recycling to raise awareness among legislators and the general public about the need to increase mattress recycling in the Commonwealth.
This event also highlights our mattress recycling bill. The Bill establishes a study commission to examine why only 5% of mattresses get recycled in the state, how to increase mattress recycling, and whether we can save millions of dollars for taxpayers and municipalities by increasing mattress recycling through various programs.
Location State House, Beacon Hill, Great Hall
