Materials Exchange

Purpose
The purpose of the materials exchange programs is to encourage the reuse of materials and to reduce the amount of waste or surplus materials entering landfills.

Materials exchange programs are based on the idea that one person's or company’s waste may be useful to another person, business or organization.

Through a materials exchange, companies and organizations can reduce their waste disposal costs by finding other companies, organizations, schools, or individuals who can use these waste or surplus materials in their processes or programs.
Materials Exchange
Business Materials Exchange
The Minnesota Materials Exchange Program, implemented by the Minnesota Technical Assistance Program, allows businesses, nonprofit groups, and government agencies who have surplus materials, reusable products, or supplies available to exchange them for no/low cost to other businesses who can then use the materials. 

Clay County’s involvement in business materials exchange is to promote the available exchange resource to the business community and provide assistance when necessary. 

For more information, see the Minnesota Materials Exchange Program

Clay County is the host of a resident materials exchange program.
