Welcome to the Resource Exchange Network for Eliminating Waste (RENEW). This tool is designed to help facilities in EPA Region 6 (Arkansas, New Mexico, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Texas) exchange materials that would otherwise be disposed of. RENEW allows you to see materials available at a facility, or post your own materials. Facilities who post materials can avoid disposal costs, and possibly reduce their regulatory burden. Searching available materials helps you find materials for your facility at a reduced cost, often free.

RENEW Success Stories

A chemical manufacturing plant transferred 18,000,000 pounds of heavy oil type by-product to a fuel blending distributor. They earned $1,000,000 for sale of the by-product which would have otherwise been disposed of.

A manufacturer of valve and pipe fittings sold 8,000 pounds of brass chips from machining and grinding operations. These chips generated $300 in revenue and the company avoided $6,000 in disposal costs.
