Worldwide Freecycle

A brilliant recycling initiative and it's happening all over the world. It's very well established in the UK and I have used it quite a lot. It's completely free too. A daily list is emailed, detailing thing wanted or offered. It's surprising what gets posted eg computers, electrical goods, furniture. So if you are an avid recycler this is definitely for you.

Some countries may not have the extensive network the UK has, but it all has to start somewhere.

Check it out for yourself:

I am a member of the Istanbul group, and can recommend it. A lot of people need help in their charitable efforts, and this group is wonderful!

Wow...there is a Istanbul group too, that's great! I'm a member also. It's a great organization that I'd recommend to all.

I too am a member

I gave my spare vacuum cleaner away and my daughter managed to acquire a super antique pine book case.

There is a safety aspect to keep in mind though. People should be wary as you never know who is on the other end of an offer or request. Safety in numbers during collections!

Yes, most people leave items outside. That seems to be the most common method.
