Their goal is to reduce waste by providing an alternative to sending unneeded, but still usable items to the landfill. The Freecycle 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 furniture, clothing, building materials, computers, and all those other things that clutter our basements and garages. The main rule is that all items must be FREE.
Together we can help the environment while also helping members of our local community. Please help us spread the word!
The Freecycle Network is made up of many individual groups across the globe. It's a grassroots and entirely nonprofit movement of people who are giving (& getting) stuff for free in their own towns. Each local group is moderated by a local volunteer. Membership is free.
The Freecycle Network was started in May 2003 to promote waste reduction in Tucson's downtown and help save desert landscape from being taken over by landfills. The Network provides individuals and non-profits an electronic forum to "recycle" unwanted items. One person's trash can truly be another's treasure!
