Connecticut is one of five Northeastern states funding a new website designed to allow businesses, communities, institutions and organizations to facilitate swaps of usable or surplus materials and prevent them from being thrown away.

The website, Reuse Marketplace, was launched on Monday, said Lynn Rubinstein, executive director of the Northeast Recycling Council, a Vermont-based regional nonprofit. In addition to Connecticut’s Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, agencies in Delaware, Massachusetts, New Jersey and Rhode Island are funding the website along with contributions from seven companies from the solid waste and recycling industries, Rubinstein said.
