Darren pointed me towards the London Freecycle Group. It’s a straightforward mailing list where people (in London) post stuff they want to get rid of, the only condition being that it has to be free. It’s also possible to make a request for something although the rules around this are a bit tighter. There’s a lot of interesting things going through, and in the day I’ve been a member I’ve seen such things as:
- An old Dyson
- Some household doors
- Old videos (with and without films on)
- Some ‘hardly used’ felt tip pents
- A payphone.
It’s quite high traffic but an excellent way of getting rid of something that you no longer want but someone else might.
One thought on “Freecycle London”
For all of you who like the idea of freecycling take a look at this new site which makes it all a good deal easier! Its called GreenGonzo – Freecycle Search at http://www.greengonzo.com and it provides a searchable database of things people are giving away in the UK.
