FreecycleThe goal of the Freecycle network is to reduce waste by providing an alternative to sending unneeded, but still usable items to the landfill. The network connects individuals looking to get rid of items with individuals or charities that could benefit from these goods. Freecycle is the place to find a home for your unwanted (but still usable!) furniture, clothing, building materials, computers, and all those other things that clutter our basements and garages. The only rule is that all items must be free, legal, and appropriate for all ages.
