About Us


Established in 2004, by the NYC Department of Sanitation’s Bureau of Waste Prevention, Reuse and Recycling (BWPRR) and housed at the City College of New York's Grove School of Engineering (CCNY), NYC Materials Exchange Development Program (NYC MEDP) provides a broad range of support services to NYC’s reuse sector.

NYC MEDP works to strengthen materials exchange and reuse in NYC by supporting New York City’s reuse organizations through networking, research, training, and program development.

In addition to these services, NYC MEDP also operates its own FREE online materials exchange and referral service for businesses and nonprofits, NYC WasteMatch.

NYC MEDP is a MEMBERSHIP ORGANIZATION, open and FREE to entities dealing with second-hand goods and materials reuse in New York City. For more information on membership, please see our member’s area.
