Don't Dump! - Freecycle!

From pianos to old printers people are turning away from dumping and giving away their “almost rubbish” to people living near by.

It’s called Freecycling and these are the groups of people currently doing it in the south’s main towns – there are many others

Winchester - 3305 active members
Southampton - 9419 active members
Portsmouth - 3685 active members
Isle of Wight - 1904 active members
Bournemouth - 6472 active members

The above are main centres we've picked out but there are many other groups who could be much closer to you for example:

New Forest East - 1634 active members
Fareham - 1449 active members
Wimborne Minster - 754 active members

As they say…
“Freecycle groups match people who have things they want to get rid of with people who can use them.

Everything posted must be free, legal and appropriate for all ages. When you want to OFFER something - whether it's a chair, fax machine, piano or an old door, simply send an email to your group.

Maybe you're looking to acquire something yourself? Post a WANTED message and a group member may just have what you're looking for. Alert the group with a follow-up RECEIVED email.”
