Have items to Freecycle? You don't have to wait for the next Freecycling day -
What is FREECYCLING?
It is an opportunity to donate and recycle things you no longer need. But that's only the half of it. The best part is that you can take away anything else you want that someone else left there. It's a big trading event and it's all FREE! It's a way for all of us to find something we need and keep as much stuff out of our landfill as possible in a fun way. A vendor will take away clothing and other items that will remain at the end of the day to be reused. Other items will be sorted to be recycled or dispose of. Our aim is to have as little trash as possible - please bring usable items only.
Freecycling day is a community event for people to exchange usable items for personal use, not for resale
Items not taken will be donated or recycled at the end of the day.
What to bring: Cloths and Shoes, Bags, Sports equipment, Toys, House decorations, Bicycles, Kitchen supplies, Small appliances, Tools, etc.
