Information about Materials Marketplace


Welcome to the Materials Marketplace

The Materials Marketplace is a facilitated transaction platform that connects businesses to develop and scale new reuse and recycling market opportunities. Our program aims to create a closed-loop, collaborative network of businesses, organizations and entrepreneurs where one organization’s hard-to-recycle waste and by-products becomes another organization’s raw material. in addition to diverting waste from landfills, these recovery activities generate significant cost savings, energy savings, and create new jobs and business opportunities.

Regional Focus, National (US) Scale

This US Materials Marketplace platform brings together users from regional Materials Marketplace programs in Austin, Tennessee and Michigan - more regions will be coming online as we continue to grow. This hybrid approach allows our team to get deeply engaged with region-specific challenges and opportunities, and facilitate interaction at the national scale when appropriate. For more information on our regional efforts, visit the program websites below:

Creating a Sustainable Materials Marketplace

The Materials Marketplace exists to make reuse and recycling standard business practices. By joining, we believe you share that vision. Today, members can join and participate for free thanks to support from our corporate, city and state sponsors. In the future, the Marketplace should be self-funded, with pricing driven by the value it brings its members. It is important that the pricing method we use does not hinder participation. So, we need your help to arrive at a method that works for all stakeholders.

Over the next few months we will be asking for your opinion and you can make suggestions anytime at by emailing us here or answering a few short survey questions below. Please join us in creating a tool that drives value and, ultimately, moves us all towards a new reuse economy.
