Whilst it sometimes seems great that a business is recycling something. the truth is they often capture recycled goods and lock them up only releasing them when someone pays to take the item. As long as recycled goods are sitting in storage there is a fair argument that they have not actually being recycled. Now consider them antiques, heritage, reconditioned or restored and the ticket price goes up further and they may be even slower to find a new home.

FreeCycle looks at if differently, just give it away (Offer) for free, ask for something (wanted) and indicate when it has being claimed (taken).


The Freecycle Network™ is made up of thousands of groups with millions of members around the world. It’s a grassroots and entirely nonprofit movement of people who are giving (and getting) stuff for free in their own towns. It’s all about reuse and keeping good stuff out of landfills. Each local group is moderated by local volunteers (them’s good people). Membership is free. To sign up, find your community by entering it into the search box above or by clicking on ‘Browse Groups’ above the search box. Have fun!
