Marci,

Many if not most states have programs that can assist businesses with
finding markets for materials. Here in Wisconsin, SHWEC's market
specialist is Mary Kohrell(414-465-707) at UW Green Bay (that's Green Bay as in
Superbowl Champions). Mary tracks markets, who's buying what at what
price, and helps businesses connect.

A good source to check with for state-specific contacts is the
National Recycling Coalition (NRC), at 703/683-9025.

There is a waste exchange service on the World-Wide Web at:
Recycler's World
http://www.recycle.net/recycle/sites/yahoo.html
The ability to move materials through a service like this depends a
lot on amount of materials and geographic proximity. Often a state
or locally run exchange would be more helpful for finding nearby
markets. Again, I think NRC could help identify waste exchanges for
a given location.

I hope this helps,
Wayne
