UIDP Webinar Recording: Mattress Recycling Council’s Research Program and Funding Opportunities

The Mattress Recycling Council (MRC) invests $1 million annually in research to increase the recyclability of mattresses and find new end markets for used mattress components. More than 50,000 mattresses a day are discarded in the U.S. Through recycling, more than 75% of the components from used mattresses can be remade into new products or uses, diverting valuable material from the waste stream.

In this webinar, learn about MRC’s open research funding opportunities and how you can apply. The webinar provides an overview of MRC and its statewide recycling operations in the U.S. as well as the strategic goals and priorities of MRC’s research program and recent success stories. MRC answers questions and provides tips for submitting a request for proposal and discusses their process and timeline for awards.
