Materials Exchanges

IMEX is a free listing service designed to help businesses find markets for industrial by-products, surplus materials, and wastes in the Pacific Northwest. Businesses, offices, schools, and individuals "advertise" their surplus/unwanted materials, or materials that they are seeking, by submitting an electronic IMEX listing form. The listings are then posted on the IMEX website, where they are viewed by interested waste generators and waste recyclers.
