      Individuals Reduce Waste with Freecycle!

      Re-using products is one the most effective things you can do to reduce your impact. Freecycle is an online community of folks nationwide who share unwanted products with others, diverting tons of waste from landfills.
      The only rule - everything has to be free.

       Visit their site to find local Freecycling groups near you.

      Businesses & Industry Reduce Waste with RENEW!

      Oklahoma is now a member of the Resource Exchange for Eliminating Waste (RENEW).  This tool is designed to allow business, industrial or manufacturing facilities to exchange materials that would otherwise be discarded.  Facilities that post materials can avoid disposal costs, and possibly reduce their regulatory burden. Searching available materials helps you find items for your facility at a reduced cost, often free.   Click here for the Oklahoma Materials Exchange on RENEW.
