North Carolina Webpage is Online Exchange Venue for Recycables, Other Waste
Raleigh, NC - North Carolina's new online marketplace for discarded or surplus materials is now available. The N.C. Division of Pollution Prevention and Environmental Assistance (DPPEA) has developed NC WasteTrader (www.ncwastetrader.org), an online exchange for recyclable commodities and other waste materials for use by North Carolina businesses, industries and local governments.
Listing waste and byproducts that are often sent to landfills with NC WasteTrader is one way in which companies can divert their waste to be reused by others rather than sent for disposal. The exchange also reduces reliance on disposal as the preferred option for managing hazardous wastes. Participants can list waste materials and byproducts that they have available, as well as list materials that they use and want. Commodities such as post-industrial plastic, wood, metal, chemicals, rubber, electronics scrap and more will be up for trade on NC WasteTrader.
