The Free give is made up of groups with members across the world. Free give connects people who are giving and getting stuff for free in their own towns. It's all about reuse and keeping good stuff out of landfills. The mission in hand is to help reduce the 1000's of tones of reusable goods that end up in landfills and incinerators every year. This is an easy way to reduce the clutter in your home and help someone else at the same time. Clear out your cupboards, attics, sheds and garages with minimal effort. Working or easily repairable goods, such as furniture, recycle toys, recycle car parts, recycle beds, recycle sofas anything that is taking up space can be passed on to someone else if you are upgrading your own.

Simply post details of your unwanted item on your local group and then arrange for whoever wants it to come and collect it. Another benefit of using Freegive is that it encourages us to get rid of junk that we no longer need and promote community involvement in the process. By using Freegive, not only are you able to get rid of your item with the minimum of fuss; you will also be doing your part in stopping another reusable item ending up in a landfill and, at the same time, helping someone in your community by gifting them the item you no longer need. We hope that everyone will follow the 3 simple rules of Reducing, Reusing and Recycling. This will help make the planet a little healthier, happier and safer for our future families. The only rule is that everything posted are free. There is no charge for this, it's completely free to join. Visit Freegive homepage at: www.freegive.co.uk
