Most people have now heard of Freecycle groups but how many of us are getting involved? I have found my local Freecycle organisation extremely useful for both gardening, kitchen and miscellaneous items. For example, this year I have kindly received a compost bin, windfall fruit, 1930s china, jam jars and garden netting.
I have also been able to pass on items I no longer need which the fair way of using the system and a great way to recycle. For anyone who is not familiar with Freecycle, you register online with your nearest group and can post a wanted ad or just browse the list of items being offered.
