California Mattress Recycling Fee…Like Recycling Cans? Not really…

January 7, 2016

MRC

So…December 30th, 2015 begins the California Mattress Recycle Fee to help promote recycling of mattresses. This is a charge of $11.00 per piece for every mattress and foundation sold in the state of California.

California’s Used Mattress Recovery and Recycling Act (enacted in 2013 and amended in 2014) requires mattress manufacturers to create a statewide recycling program for mattresses discarded in the state. The Program will be funded through an $11 recycling fee collected from consumers when a mattress or box spring is sold beginning Dec. 30, 2015.  The Mattress Recycling Council (MRC) is a non-profit organization established by the mattress industry that has been certified by CalRecycle to develop and administer the Program.”

On the surface we like this idea. Mattress recycling has got to be a HUGE issue. Originally, we thought that this fee was not only going to assist in recycling mattresses, but as a side effect it could go a long way to helping to curb the proliferation of used and rebuilt mattresses in the marketplace. But does it really do that? We’re not so sure.

Currently there are many manufacturers that make rebuilt and sanitized mattresses in the California market. We at Dreamland aren’t fans of the rebuilt industry. We’ve all seen trucks of every size and shape laden with used mattresses driving down the street. Chances are excellent that the mattresses on these trucks aren’t heading to recycling centers, rather they are going to companies that “rebuild” these old mattresses to be sold again to the consumer. On average companies pay about $5 per piece for these used mattresses and foundations.

So one might think that with a new “CRV” for mattresses that these trucks full of used mattresses would be encouraged to return these beds to the state appointed recycling centers to redeem the $11 fee much in the way that we recycle aluminum cans. Even if the recycle refund was $7, leaving $4 per mattress and box to fund the operating expenses of the state, it would be much more beneficial to recycle the mattresses rather then taking them to be rebuilt. Kill 2 birds with one stone…promote recycling and reduce the used bedding market…right? Not so much.

If a guy with a truck filled with mattresses and boxes goes to one of the state appointed recycling centers to turn mattresses in…they get zero. No recycle refund of any kind. So what does that mean? That means they will continue to take used mattresses and boxes to companies to be added to the consumer market again. And of course those mattresses don’t get recycled. We suppose it could be argued that having them rebuilt is in a sense recycling. But certainly not in the way the state would or should want it to be.

So now, let’s say a consumer who has paid the recycling fee wants to turn in their mattress themselves and recycle it and recoup the fee, or a portion of the fee, that they have paid at the time of purchase. What do they receive? Again, they get zero. Why would John Q. Public want to hump this old mattress way across town to recycle it? They get not a dime, and they have to do work to get it there. Additionally they are not required to do so. There is nothing in the new legislation that requires mattresses to be recycled.

How about the vendors that sell mattresses? We have to charge the consumer the fee, but even we are not required to recycle mattresses. We are required to pick up used mattresses from the consumer, for a fee, if requested by the consumer to do so. But we do not have to take them to a recycling center.

What do manufacturers need to do? Nothing, nada, zilch, zip…not a thing. Has anything changed in the rebuild industry at all? The answer to that simple question is no.

Some might be inclined to ask, if this is a recycle fee based on recycling, then why on Earth would I have to pay it at the time of purchase like a tax? Why not charge it at the time of recycle? Is it because no one is actually required to recycle?

That, my friends, is a question that we here at Dreamland cannot answer. We are simply to charge the customer and give the money over to the MRC. If you have questions about this, feel free to contact your congressman or senator. I have to be honest…I don’t ever remember voting on this legislation, and believe me, if legislation has the word mattress anywhere near it, I would have seen it!

All in all, does this legislation really address the issue of recycling? Not much from what I’ve seen. But admittedly I haven’t seen it all, so the jury is still out…I just hope that it isn’t a kangaroo court!

Re: Restonic

October 28, 2009

> Anyone have any input on these beds?

Restonic is an independent mattress company with retail outlets and factories across the country. Founded in 1938 they have received Consumer Digest Best Buy nods on 6 occasions. They are headquartered in Buffalo New York.

They have a pretty slick website at: http://www.restonic.com

As with ALL mattress companies, there are good beds and those that are not so good. Same is true for Restonic.

In your case there a couple of interesting points:

1) A 100% latex bed should have been great for your back. It sounds like something may have been up with that…but not knowing the situation it’s tough to say. But generally speaking, latex kicks some serious butt.

2) Your weight is light…even though it’s normal for pillow top mattresses to show body impressions, for your case, it was very fast. If you don’t want body impressions so quickly then a bed without a big slab of extra padding that can matte down on top would likely be a good idea…perhaps a plush or even a luxury firm may be the ticket for you.

If you live in the Los Angeles area of California, Dreamland Mattress in Covina can get you a Stresso-pedic mattress of whatever type you like.

I’m always happy to answer any type of mattress inquiry. I have 30 years experience in the industry.

Unfortunately what is also true is that due to internal issues Simmons USA filed for bankruptcy earlier this year, and were unable to pay the note in the spring and were extended to June. When June came and Simmons was unable to pay the note again, the company was threatened with complete closure.

Fortunately for Simmons, one of the brands carried by Dreamland Discount Mattress, Serta, came to the rescue by purchasing Simmons and thus saving the brand from total extinction.

The side benefit is the ability of Serta to make use of various technologies that were once the exclusive domain of Simmons. At Dreamland we have numerous mattresses that utilize the pocketed coil technology made famous by Simmons Beautyrest.

Pocketed coils that conform to your body providing the type of support unavailable from other brands like Sealy and Stearns & Foster. No roll together and minimum motion transfer are a couple of benefits of this type of coil.

I think that the BEST benefit of pocketed coil spring units are their unique ability to mold to the body based on the size and shape of the body. It molds to the exact form of whomever is laying on it regardless of weight, height, or shape.

Re: Stressopedic @ bedding-chatter.com

> IF THERE IS A RESPONSE TO THIS MESSAGE THAT SOUNDS
> GOOD, JUST REMEMBER IT’S STRESS-0-PEDIC SCAMMERS
> LIEING ABOUT THE MEXICO FACTORY AND THEY WILL LIE

> MESSAGE KNOWING THAT IT’S A SCAM!!

Wow…someone has an axe to grind…

I’m not saying that the guy above doesn’t have a reason to gripe. I don’t even know the situation. But I own a store in Covina California called Dreamland Mattress and Stresso is one of the brands I carry and have carried for years.

Stressopedic is in Ontario California, the have a website, with a phone number and an address:

http://www.stressopedic.com/

Stress-O-Pedic Mattress Company
2060 South Wineville Ave.
Ontario, California 91761
(909) 605-2010

I have been to the factory literally a hundred times in the past years to will call products. For an independent it is a big factory…bigger than Spring Airs former factory in Baldwin Park Ca, and rivaling both Sealys Southgate factory and the Simmons factory in Rancho Santa Dominguez, which is actually Compton Ca.

They have no Mexico plant (That I know of anyway)…they don’t even do rebuilt mattresses and in my 30 years of retailing mattresses I’ve never heard anyone even suggest that they did.

The bottom line is this…

Every company, even independents, make some great mattresses and every name brand makes some crap. That’s undeniable low end Simmons and Sealy are crap and high end Stresso and Diamond and Leader and whoever are good.

You basically get what you pay for.

What independents (including Stresso and a zillion other guys you’ve never heard of) have going for them is they do not pay co-op advertising money to their vendors the way that name brands do. That allows their product to sell for less. Bottom line.

Is Stresso a good product. I have had very few problems with them over the years. I have had more trouble with Spring Air before they went out of business. (By the way a company called Englander based back east has bought the Spring Air name so it is likely we will see the name show up again. Simmons in the 1980’s had one of the worst return rates in the industry, but now they have one of the lowest. Being a name brand is no guarantee the bed will be great, and being a Stessopedic is no guarantee the bed will be no good.

That’s just my 2 cents worth…   =)
