Don't Toss It—Match It!

Don't Toss It—Match It!


“One company’s by-products can be another company’s raw materials” is the tagline for WasteMatch.org, a free, material exchange service based in NYC.

The Materials Exchange matches generators of valuable commercial waste and surplus goods with organizations that can reuse them. Waste producers sell what they once paid to throw away; reusers obtain materials for free or at low prices. Once you sign up, you’ll receive email notifications like this:  

The following material listing has been added to www.wastematch.org.

----------------------------------------------------------------------------------
You can then click the link to contact the organization that posted the listing.

Waste Stream Assessments and Recommendations
Another part of the service includes professional recommendations to suggest options to reuse and recycling that reduce waste disposal costs. WasteMatch.org also assists with brokering surplus inventory and used equipment, and in purchasing equipment and materials at competitive prices.

Research and Development
For those items that are difficult to recycle, NY WasteMatch performs informal research to identify reuse and recycling opportunities for materials that are difficult to place.

I like your straight forward and down to earth approach. I think the world still has a lot to learn about tolerance and environment protection from Greener Earth. If you know how hard it is for environmentalists to protect nature and to have the will to keep fighting, you know what I mean.

It's a good motto. The Allstate has a similar logo. I used this construction company to rebuild my entire house and they did an excellent job, a truly professional job. From what I understood their motto is something like this: don't toss it, renovate it. It's nice, right?!
