One Man’s Trash is Another Man’s Treasure… Freecycle.org

FreecycleRemember that line from the Beatles song “If you want it, here it is, come and get it.”  Well that pretty much sums up a wonderful website I recently discovered called Freecycle.org.  I heard about the site last Friday while listening to All Things Considered on WYSO.  Freecycle allows you to give unwanted items to anyone who might want to take them away.  It also allows you to get the things you need from other people who no longer want them.  The primary rule, Everything is free.  Pianos, computer equipment, furniture, clothes and more are listed on the site.  Want one?  Sure, no charge!  Zero, Zip, Nada.  There are hundreds of thousands of members all across the country, broken down by locality and region.  This is a great way to keep things out of landfills and in the hands of grateful users.  It is also proof that there are worthwhile things happening on the Internet.  Save yourself some cash by checking this out for yourself.
