The Mattress Recycling Organization must submit Budgets annually on July 1st to demonstrate adequate funding to cover the anticipated costs of implementing the Program.

However, in acknowledgement of the COVID-19 public health emergency, CalRecycle is providing additional time to the Mattress Recycling Council (MRC) to submit its annual report and annual budget as required by Public Resources Code 42990.1 and 42988, respectively, from July 1, 2020, to September 1, 2020. This extension is in response to the challenges presented to the MRC, its service providers, solid waste facilities, mattress recyclers, and mattress renovators to provide necessary services and data needed for preparation of the reports due to the current public health emergency.
