I love the concept of freecycle.org, however, I have the worst luck actually getting anything. I’ve responded to emails the second they hit my inbox, and the stuff seems to be gone. It’s like calling into a radio station to be the 63rd caller. Do they even do that anymore?
I do love the concept of freecycle, but I’m not a fan of it being a Yahoo group. I can use it, but it’s not a user-friendly site. I missed many things on there, trying desperately to be the first responder, things like A/C filters, canning jars, art supplies and even a hot tub. I knew the hot tub would go quick.
I’ll keep trying freecycle, because I believe in what you’re doing, keeping stuff out of landfills. Other people’s trash is definitely my treasure.
