Material Mix features software that commoditizes the trade of reusable materials within the current waste collection industry. Businesses may choose materials that meet their specific needs. This business model provides a solution to businesses with an excess of undervalued, reusable byproducts as well as businesses seeking materials for their own production purposes.
