Don’t throw it away – give it away on Freegle!
Offer and request free items on your local Freegle UK reuse community.
Use the app to join your local Freegle reuse community for free. Then use it to look at the items offered or requested by others - you can reply to ask for the item or offer something you have spare.
It's easy to offer an unwanted item that you want to get rid of along with a photo. Anyone interested will get back in touch by email - or you can respond in the app. Similarly, you can request something that you want and people will hopefully offer you it.
Everything must be free and legal. Some local communities have extra rules such as no pets.
Be safe and nice when making arrangements to meet - if you can't make it, say so immediately. Never pay courier fees for delivery - it is a scam.
Reusing items saves you money, clears your clutter, helps your neighbours, saves the world's resources and reduces the amount going to waste.
