April 21, 2017,
ALEXANDRIA, Va. – The Mattress Recycling Council has promoted Justine Fallon to operations manager to oversee the mattress recycling programs known as Bye Bye Mattress in California, Connecticut and Rhode Island.
Based in the Northeast, she will be responsible for leading MRC’s day-to-day operations and managing the program coordinators as they work with their states’ municipalities, retailers, transporters and recyclers.
Fallon has more than 20 years of experience managing solid waste and recycling programs, leading public education and outreach activities, and overseeing contracting and vendor communications for public and private entities.
“Justine is well respected in the recycling industry and waste management arena and has demonstrated a robust understanding of governance and regulatory process and issues,” said Ryan Trainer, president of the MRC and the International Sleep Products Assn. “We are pleased to have her fully ingrained in our team and remain confident that she has the leadership abilities and project management skills to nurture all of our state programs.”
The Mattress Recycling Council is a non-profit organization formed by the mattress industry to operate recycling programs in states which have enacted mattress recycling laws – Connecticut, California and Rhode Island. More than one million mattresses are recycled each year. Each state’s program is funded by a recycling fee that is collected when a mattress or box spring is sold.
