The Surplus Exchange recognizes that while the process of manufacturing new products drains our limited resources, and the disposal of materials no longer utilized or wanted
pollutes our environment, many consituents of our communities are encumbered for lack of affordable goods, and educational and occupational opportunities.
The Surplus Exchange promotes reuse and recycling as a means to
prevent wast, improve our communities, and increase the material, educational and occupational well-being of our citizens by taking useful products discarded by those who don’t want them and providing them to those who do.
Reuse is the answer to many local community problems:
The Surplus Exchange is able to utilize the donated equipment to provide services that improve the lives of resident who live in and around the Kansas City Community.
