Recycling For Free: Freecycling

Tuesday, August 11th, 2009

Out of convenience, many of us haul items down to the curb and send them off in a garbage truck never to be seen again.  It is one of those “out of sight, out of mind” scenarios.  Yet, instead of allowing items that are still in good condition to end up in the landfill, why not allow someone else to get a second use out of the item?

There is now a program that offers this exact service and it’s called Freecycling! It began as a grassroots effort to encourage people to recycle and reuse items and now people of different communities are getting involved in the efforts.

On the Freecycling website, you can join others from your community  in their reuse and recycling initiatives or you can start a group in your own community!  Then you can upload photos of your items and check out what others have to offer.  The best part about this program is it is entirely free; no money is ever exchanged!

If you are interested in participating in a program like this be sure to check out the Freecycling website and get started today!!
