WasteMatch
Alex Steffen, 3 Dec 04

The New York WasteMatch Materials Exchange is like a sort of distributed Kalundborg, industrial ecology on the cheap.

Embracing the principle that waste equals food, WasteMatch sets the table by connecting people with waste they'd have to pay to get rid of with people who need that material, cheap:

The Materials Exchange is a free service that matches generators of valuable commercial waste and surplus goods with organizations that can reuse them. Waste producers sell what they once paid to throw away; reusers obtain materials for free or at low prices.

Think of it, supporters say, as an industrial freecycle.
