Freecycle

My mom told me about this site. It is a place where you can offer things for free. It is strictly local... so you have to find one in your area. Here are the rules:

OFFER: Nothing is too small to offer. Anything can be posted - apple corer to zither BUT it MUST be free!

TAKEN: Post a TAKEN message when item has gone to it's new home.

WANTED: Please use this judiciously.

Two strikes you're out. Strikes are issued for being naughty in any of the following areas:
1. MANTRA: Keep It FREE, LEGAL APPROPRIATE FOR ALL AGES
2. TABOO: No Politics, Opinions, Spam, Email Harvesting, Bickering, Selling, Trading, Matchmaking, Bottlecaps, Coupons or "Come-and-Get-it" Posts
3. EMAIL: Special Notices is the minimum email setting allowed. The No Mail setting is a no no
3. LOCATION: List in offer "off Rt 50 near_"
4. DESCRIBE: Good for parts? Needs work? Just tell us - we can take it.
5. MULTIPLE GROUPS: No Posting items on more than one group. Post in your MOST local group & wait a few days. Remove it from the first and OFFER to the next.
6. INTANGIBLES: No Gmail, requests for play groups or dates - keeping things out of the landfill is our goal.
