Exchange Unwanted Materials

Take Care of Texas

Is your organization looking for a way to get rid of materials that you no longer need? The Resource Exchange Network for Eliminating Waste is a free materials-exchange network for industries, businesses, and governmental units that promotes reclaiming, recycling, and reuse of materials. 

Through RENEW, industries and businesses are able to exchange materials that would otherwise be disposed of. By exchanging materials for recycling or reuse, organizations can minimize waste, avoid disposal costs, and potentially reduce their regulatory burden. Reusing materials also helps the environment by helping to conserve our natural resources and keeping waste out of our landfills.

Available Items
