The Reuse Marketplace is free and available for New York State municipalities to use. The Marketplace is an online network for non-profits, institutions, businesses, and governments to post reusable and surplus items. In addition to browsing the listed items, you can post the items you need. As a regional materials exchange, the Reuse Marketplace replaces individual state materials exchanges and allows 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 related subcategories. In addition to saving money and obtaining low cost reusable goods, your municipality can reduce disposal costs, achieve sustainability and waste reduction goals, and possibly earn LEED credits. To begin posting items, you must become a site member by creating an account. Eligible members are limited to organizations in one of the seven participant states: Connecticut, Delaware, Massachusetts, New Jersey, New York, Rhode Island, and Vermont. The Reuse Marketplace is supported by state agencies and private businesses. The website is administered and monitored by the Northeast Recycling Council (NERC), a regional non-profit dedicated to an environmentally sustainable economy through source and toxicity reduction, reuse, recycling, and green purchasing.
