logo of The Freecycle Network

The Freecycle Network™ is made up of many individual groups across the globe. It’s a grassroots movement of people who are giving (& getting) stuff for free in their own towns. Each local group is run by a local volunteer moderator. The Network provides individuals and non-profit organisations an electronic forum to “recycle” unwanted items. One person’s trash can truly be another’s treasure!
Think globally, recycle locally.
