PRESS RELEASE: DEEP is pleased to announce our participation in the newly launched Reuse Marketplace - a web-based resource to Capture Value, Exchange Reusable Items, Save Money & Reduce Waste.  The Reuse Marketplace is a free regional website that businesses, municipalities, institutions and organizations can use for posting or obtaining reusable or surplus materials that would otherwise be disposed as trash.  It's is a quick and efficient way to manage surplus or gently used goods, which saves money and reduces waste disposal throughout Connecticut and the northeast region.   Anyone can browse the website and obtain materials, but only businesses, municipalities, institutions and organizations in the states of CT, DE, MA, NJ, NY, RI, and VT can become members and offer items for reuse.  The Reuse Marketplace is being administered by the Northeast Recycling Council (NERC) and sponsored by several government agencies and private companies doing business in Connecticut.  
Questions can be directed to  K.C. Alexander of the Connecticut Dept. of Energy & Environmental Protection at 860-424-3239 or Lynn Rubinstein of NERC at 802-254-3636.
