Swansea Freecycle

I've recently joined a very useful Yahoo group called Swansea Freecycle. It's part of a worldwide network of local recycling groups. Essentially, members give away usable, unwanted items, to other members. It cuts down on the amount of waste sent to landfill, and also, provides a very useful, free service. So far, I've given away a perfectly good, unwanted rotary clothes airer, and I have someone due to collect an unwanted vacuum cleaner this morning. Although I've not yet received anyhing via this group, you can also pick up a few useful freebies. But note that members who join simply to receive, and not give, aren't very welcome in such groups.

If you have a lot of stuff lying around your house that you don't need, but could be used elsewhere, why don't you give it a go? Either click the link above, or go to the sidebar on the right. Clicking the Yahoo! Groups button, or the text link below, will take you to the joining page. You never know, you might also pick up a fab freebie.
