The idea of freecycling is to promote the three R's (Reduce, Reuse, and Recycle) by making it easy for people to give away their unwanted but reusable items to people who can use them .
And the way it works is that there are thousands of locally run, grassroots freecycling groups around the world. Once you find and join your local groups, you can post 'Offers‘ for items you want to give away, or 'Wants' for items you need (as long as you follow some basic rules shown below) .
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 free cycling group might be able to use your unwanted stuff.
