The Freecycle Network™
By: Amy Hughes
Since its humble beginning in 2003, The Freecycle Network™ has grown into a worldwide grassroots recycling movement with over 4,000 groups and millions of members.
The concept is simple: provide a way for those with items they no longer need to pass them on to those that do, rather than throwing them away.
Membership and all items are free and include anything from computers and furniture to building materials and appliances.
Listings and requests are posted online by each local group. Visit freecycle.org to find out how to join in your area.
