Materials Exchange

Material Exchange Program from Keep Nebraska Beautiful

The Nebraska Materials Exchange Program  encourages businesses and manufacturers across Nebraska to review disposal costs and examine the management of their waste products. Good, usable materials that are no longer needed can be listed in the Materials Exchange Program. The cost is free. Keep Nebraska Beautiful is proud to offer this program and anticipates continued growth and success.

Participating in the program saves money and space associated with storage, disposal, and overall landfill waste. Many schools and businesses have saved hundreds of dollars by seeking materials through the Exchange Program instead of purchasing new items. Currently more than 2 million pounds of materials are exchanged every month.

The Link

The Link is a quarterly materials exchange newsletter provided with the Materials Exchange Program, a state wide venture that seeks to eliminate the amount of solid waste filling our landfills. Through the use of a database, industries, businesses and schools are able to identify possible matches regarding materials they are either seeking or generating. Listings are free of charge and can be confidential by request.
