A Guide to Freecycling

14 April 2009

In these hard times for all of us, freecycling may be a way of saving money and helping keep things out of landfill as well. Freecycling developed in the USA, but it quickly developed into a global phenomenon, with many people giving and receiving free goods.

It works in two ways, either over the internet or at “swap meets” or “swap shops” where people meet in a village hall and put their items on tables and take away what they want.

Giving away or getting things over the internet is similar. There are many local freecycle groups, so it is just a case of putting up an advertisement, then waiting till someone replies and comes round to collect the goods.
