Waste has Met its Match

November 5, 2010


Likened to a Craigslist for industrial waste, Recycle Match screens and pairs companies producing industrial waste with those who can reuse it. Vinyl billboards become shopping bags, for instance. There’s a one-time matching fee that’s high enough to dissuade consumers from listing household items but much lower than what companies pay to haul industrial waste. The creators say the business model creates new revenues and savings for the companies that take part, and works to positively impact the environment. (www.recyclematch.com)
