Partners in Project Green’s Material Exchange program facilitates the exchange of material generated within our stakeholder community (businesses and non-profit groups) to divert waste from landfill and move towards a circular economy.

Through the Material Exchange program, businesses and non-profit organizations provide information about material they would like to offer or receive. Partners in Project Green staff then facilitate interactions between participants to complete and promote successful exchanges.

STEP 2: CONNECT

Connect with non-profit organizations and recyclers. After you submit your online form, Partners in Project Green will facilitate introductions to groups in our network.

STEP 3: EXCHANGE

Exchange the material to divert it from landfill. You can negotiate any terms of agreement for the exchange of material. We encourage generators to provide shipping support to help get material to non-profit organizations. Partners in Project Green will remain involved to help facilitate communication between participants.

STEP 4: PROFILE

Celebrate your success story! Profile the exchange through your website and social media channels. With your permission, we are also happy to feature the exchange in an upcoming issue of the Partners in Project Green Newsletter to inspire other businesses to take part in the Material Exchange program and divert items from landfill.

HOW YOUR NON-PROFIT CAN GET INVOLVED

Are you a local non-profit organization looking to accept material? Register with us for free and let us know what material you can accept. When businesses make material available that you can accept, we will connect you to them.

We will also profile your organization to demonstrate your commitment to diverting waste and supporting local communities. Recyclers are welcome to register as well.
