Junk Finds Home Through Reuse Marketplace

Mar 8, 2013

The Rhode Island Resource Recovery Corporation has launched Rhode Island’s participation in a regional program—the “Reuse Marketplace.” This online marketplace allows businesses to find homes for extra items in their offices or warehouses that would otherwise be sent to the landfill.

Businesses and organizations from Rhode Island and several other northeastern states can post items they have or need, and anyone can browse these listings. Resource Recovery Recycling Services Director Sarah Kite says the online marketplace will benefit both businesses and the environment.

Congressman David Cicilline thinks public frustration over broad-based federal spending cuts will lead -- eventually -- to more fruitful budget talks in Congress.

Another week passes with the usual talk from the Rhode Island political and business elite on economic development. RIPR political  analyst Scott MacKay says its time for some changes in the way Rhode Islanders view our state and ourselves.
