Website turns unwanted items into treasure

Users on Freecycle can share and collect possessions for free, reducing landfill waste and saving money.

    Freecycle, an online network where people can share and collect unwanted possessions for free, is becoming of the biggest environmental web communities.

    Set up 10 years ago by a group of friends, the US-based non-profit organisation has grown to a global network of local groups with nine million members.

    The Freecycle concept is being seen as a way to reduce landfill waste while saving money.
