http://www.metrokc.gov/hazwaste/imex/ links to IMEX  - the regional "Industrial Materials Exchange."  Includes business as well as government/education/other contacts seeking to exchange materials.     

Here's an IMEX in their neighborhood.

The University of Washington (UW) has set up an internal recycling program for many of their solvents (xylene, alcohols from stain lines and some of their formalin).  Good contacts for info on their programs are Sheila Lockwood at lockwood@u.washington.edu or Doug Galluci at  douglasg@u.washington.edu

Much of the UW internal recycling work is also being done at area hospitals on their cytology lab's stain lines (alcohols) and pathology lab's tissue processing work is accomplished through in-line filtration provided and developed by a company called Creative Waste Solutions out of Portland Oregon http://www.cwsincorp.com/ 

This (materials exchange) is something I'm also talking with the Kent School District about piloting.  Contact on that process is me...

I'm looking for good examples of on-line systems for non-equipment (e.g.,
office supplies, maybe lab chemicals) materials exchanges between
government agencies or within an agency or university.  Please send me the
URL of such systems you would recommend.  We are thinking of setting up
such a system either within our agency (Illinois Department of Natural
Resources)  or maybe statewide.
