The Reuse Marketplace is a free multi-state materials exchange to find, sell, trade, or give away reusable and surplus items that would otherwise be disposed as trash. Businesses, institutions, governments, and non-profit organizations in the states of Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont are eligible to become members and can then post listings of available items. Members may also post detailed wanted listings, specifying the type(s) of items they need. Anyone can browse and access the posted items.
The Reuse Marketplace replaced the individual state business materials exchanges in Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Vermont; and added three additional states (Delaware, New Jersey, and New York) to allow for material flow across state borders. The Marketplace includes more than 30 categories of items ranging from agricultural to textiles, as well as more than 60 subcategories. The site is intended to help members find new homes for their unwanted items, reduce trash and save money on trash disposal, and reduce their carbon footprint.
The Reuse Marketplace was originally supported by states and private businesses. NERC developed and administered the Marketplace for its first two years. Presently the site is being administered by iWasteNot Systems.
Partners: iWasteNot Systems, Connecticut Department of Energy & Environmental Protection, Delaware Solid Waste Authority, Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection, New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, New York State Department of Environmental Conservtion, Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation, and the Vermont Agency of Natural Resources.
