Affiliate Member Directory
While New York City is home to many non-profit reuse organizations that provide free/low cost materials and services to millions of New Yorkers, the City is also home to many businesses, government agencies, and academic institutions that also provide and support environmentally-conscious solid waste management and education services. These entities qualify for ReuseNYC Affiliate Membership.
ReuseNYC's Affiliate Members are a wide range of organizations (i.e. non-profit organizations, for-profit businesses, academic institutions and government agencies) that may or may not facilitate the exchange, sale or redistribution of reusable materials, but DO perform valuable research, education and development which support the social, economic and environmental areas connected to materials reuse and solid waste management.
