42989.2.1.  

(a) Mattresses manufactured by the Prison Industry Authority and purchased by the state or its agencies are exempt from collecting and remitting the mattress recycling charge and from any end-of-life financial incentive established by the mattress recycling organization for used mattresses pursuant to subdivision (k) of Section 42987.1. Mattresses sold subject to this exemption shall be permanently marked or labeled to clearly identify them as having been manufactured by the Prison Industry Authority.

(b) The Prison Industry Authority shall, upon the request of the department or mattress recycling organization, report how many mattresses it manufactured and sold in the previous fiscal year and the customers that purchased those mattresses. To the extent reasonably possible, the Prison Industry Authority, upon request by the department or the mattress recycling organization, shall report how its customers are disposing of their used mattresses and estimate what percentage are being landfilled and recycled or renovated.

(c) The mattress recycling organization’s obligation under this chapter to recycle mattresses manufactured by the Prison Industry Authority is limited to any services for which the authority has specifically contracted with the mattress recycling organization for that purpose. The mattress recycling organization may refuse to recycle or pay financial incentives on any Prison Industry Authority-manufactured mattress that is exempted from collecting and remitting the mattress recycling fee.

(d) Mattresses exempt pursuant to subdivision (a) and all discards of mattresses previously manufactured by the Prison Industry Authority shall be excluded from the goal-setting analysis required by Section 42987.5.
