Material exchanges are an excellent way to practice one of the three R's relating to conservation and waste reduction, RE-USE.  Material and waste exchanges are an option for dealing with certain hazardous surplus, such as paints.  The City of Portland for example has a used paint store, paint is used for its intended purpose and is diverted from landfills.  At a construction specific waste exchange, one might find a great set of windows or old lumber perfect for your next project.  Surplus materials are economical for the buyer, and may help the seller avoid disposal fees.   

Use the following links to locate an exchange near you:
