Welcome to the Ohio Materials Marketplace August update

Welcome to our August update on the Ohio Materials Marketplace!


We hope you have visited the new marketplace platform and found it both easier to interact with and mobile friendly.

Last month a new transaction reporting feature was added to the marketplace web page. We realized a significant increase in reported transactions including learning of our first transaction across multiple states. Thank you to both owners and takers for reporting your transactions. Reporting your transaction data is crucial to the continuation of the marketplace.


Here are a few marketplace highlights:

  • We added 7 new members in the month of August.

  • 1083 individual members are now in the marketplace representing 892 companies, organizations, and communities.

  • 7 new material listings.

  • Over 3.7 million pounds diverted from the landfill with over $220,000 in savings to members

Read on for more details, and as always, thanks for being part of our program.
