Trash or Treasure? A Community Recycling Website

There are a number of ways to reduce waste in your town, including a community recycling program called “Freecycle.”

| April/May 2014

I reduce waste with the help of the nonprofit, community recycling website, Freecycle. There’s almost always someone out there who will think your “trash” is reusable, and Freecycle can put you in touch. 

I’ve freecycled so many things that would have otherwise ended up in the recycling bin, including packing material, boxes, pet food cans and the cardboard tubes from paper products.
