Futons Added to MRC Program In California as of Jan 1, 2020
Effective January 1, 2020 futons have been added to MRC’s program in California. The $10.50 per unit fee and recycling obligations apply only to the futon mattress. They do not apply to the futon frame or base.

ACTION NEEDED:

• Manufacturers of futons that are registered with MRC must update their company profiles at MRCreporting.org if they manufacture or sell futons to any California end users. (Log in to MRCReporting.org, Click on “My Account.” Click on “My States.” Click on the green box that says “Edit Brand Names and/or URNs.” Under Producer, add your futon brand names and URNs in the box for the state of California. Click the box at the bottom that confirms the information is correct. Click the green box that says “Save URNs.” In the new window, click “Yes-continue” to complete your registration update).
