Our Projects & Programs
A major program of NYC MEDP is NYC WasteMatch, a free online materials exchange and referral service. NYC WasteMatch matches generators or donors of valuable commercial “waste” and surplus materials to users or recipients. In doing so, NYC WasteMatch keeps valuable resources out of the waste stream while offering clients an opportunity to save money and lower their environmental impact.
Fifth Annual NYC Reuse Sector Conference
The Annual NYC Reuse Sector Conference is the first city-wide conference dedicated to materials exchange and reuse. The purpose of this event is to provide an opportunity to discuss best practices, weigh in on sector strategies, and network with other organizations.
Don't let the DONATED bedbugs bite!
Bed bugs have increasingly become a topic of concern throughout the city. This educational workshop, developed by NYC MEDP in collaboration with the NYC Department of Health and Mental Hygiene (DOH), will focus on the NYC bedbug epidemic, as well as preventative practices and extermination methods, and what every Reuse Sector Member needs to know in order to protect themselves and their organization.
NYC Reuse Business Collective
The collective seeks to gather those materials exchanges, reuse programs and businesses that generate income from the sale and distribution of reusable items to support their organizational mission.
The Reuse Directors Roundtable is a quarterly meeting, seeking to bring together leaders of the NYC Reuse Sector in order to discuss the issues facing us both as individual organizations and as a group, and to work on mutually-beneficial solutions.
