What You Can Find
You can give and get almost anything on your local freecycling group.
Some of the most common posts are for items such as old electronics, building materials, clothes and books.
Even things you might not consider reusable like cloth scraps, scratched CDs and
broken appliances sometimes find homes with artists looking for materials or tinkerers looking for
an interesting project or spare parts.
Items you offer aren't expected to be in perfect condition as long as you
accurately describe their condition when you offer them.
So next time you're cleaning out the garage, moving to a new place or about to throw something away,
don't forget that someone on your local freecycling group might be able to use your unwanted stuff.
When posting to your local freecycling group, you must follow these rules:
- Groups are only used for offering and requesting items.
- No selling, trading or spamming is allowed.
- No chatting
(some groups have separate cafe groups for chatting)
- Be respectful and polite
- Nothing illegal should be posted (no drugs, weapons, etc.)
- All items posted should be appropriate for all ages.
Individual groups often have additional rules.
You should check your local group's rules before posting to the group
(especially for posts involving pets).
Each group has one or more volunteer moderators who manage the group and enforce these rules.
