Orange County Recycling Market Development Zone (OCRMDZ)

How can the OCRMDZ help YOU?

Locate Feedstock
Feedstock can vary in specifications, quantity, and reliability of source. Although finding these manufacturing materials may prove challenging, RMDZ can help by facilitating communication between companies looking for the same materials or establishing relationships between complementary businesses.

Market Your Products
Marketing is important to the success of any company. If your company produces products made from recycled-content materials, it may be listed on the CalRecycle's directories following sites:

Loan Assistance
The RMDZ Loan Program provides direct loans to businesses and nonprofits that are located in a Recycling Market Development Zone. The purpose of these loans is to promote market development for waste materials.
