Recycling business materials & waste


If you have a business that could benefit from a cheaper source of raw materials or equipment, or you have waste materials that another business could use, then Norfolk Materials Exchange (Eastex) could be very useful to you.

Eastex is a free online service that allows you to:

  • place information about materials you do not need, and;
  • look for free or cheaper sources of raw materials that another business does not need.

By using this exchange you could reduce the amount you spend on waste disposal and improve your environmental performance.

Further information

Eastex was started in 2004 when Cambridgeshire County Council adopted the existing Norfolk Materials Exchange system, allowing exchange of unwanted materials between the two counties. There are now six exchanges, based in Norfolk, Suffolk, Essex, Cambridgeshire, Bedfordshire and Hertfordshire.

The Norfolk Exchange Co-ordinator is available, free of charge, to visit your business or organisation to explain how the Exchange would be useful to you. You can contact the Exchange Co-ordinator on 01603 222089.

To register, for free, visit the Eastex website [external link] or contact the Exchange Co-ordinator on the above phone number.
