Pretty cool idea

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I saw this advertised in my homeowners association newsletter this week, so I thought I would check it out.

A couple of people who live semi-locally have started a yahoo group called Free-2-U Recycle. You join the group and post about things you have that you are willing to give away....one man's junk is another man's treasure, so to speak.

I posted about some stone garden edging I have had stacked up in my garage for 2 years. I removed it from my yard and have no use for it. I have been stuck with it, as the garbage men won't take it. Within 2 hours, I had a response. The lady gave me her cell #, I called, and she came to pick it up! I had another person email me to say she wanted it too! In a couple of hours' time, I was rid of something that was taking up space in my garage, and the lady was thrilled to get it for free!

I just think this is the greatest idea. It's a super way to recycle.

It is! The woman told me that you have to jump on stuff quickly because it goes fast.

What a great idea someone had. I found a place online that recycles old horse blankets. For a song and a dance you can buy a horse blanket that has been used (and washed or repaired) I was able to get a pretty decent blanket for my youngest horse for $20.00!

I wish they did that here. We got a free coffee table and two side tables with our sofa's and don't have room for them. They're unstained pine and really nice but none of our friends and family need more tables.

It's a fabulous idea. I've got loads of stuff I don't want. Will have to make a request they start it up here.
