I came across an interesting site, www.freecycle.org. Apparently what they do is recycle used items.
Wait a minute, that didn’t come out right…Instead of driving to the local Salvation Army or Good Will, you can post your used items on www.freecycle.org. If someone wants or needs it, they will contact you and you give it to them.
Similarly, if you need something that is posted on the site, you contact the person and to arrange pickup. Everything is free for reuse.
You join a community in your area so that you are not trying to make arrangements to pickup something from across the country.
I haven’t tried it as yet, but I thought it was worth a mention. I’m all for reuse and recycling.
