Have you heard of Freecycle yet? It is a non-profit network of groups all around the world getting and giving stuff for free. And guess what? There are already groups started for Calvert, Charles and St. Mary’s counties. I recommend joining all three as its the neighborly thing to do.
Sign up today at freecycle.org
How does it work? (From Freecycle)
“When you want to find a new home for something — whether it’s a chair, a fax machine, piano, or an old door — you simply send an e-mail offering it to members of the local Freecycle group.
Or, maybe you’re looking to acquire something yourself. Simply respond to a member’s offer, and you just might get it. After that, it’s up to the giver to decide who receives the gift and to set up a pickup time for passing on the treasure.
Our main rule: Everything posted must be free, legal, and appropriate for all ages.”
