Hurrah for Freecycle -- a simple, grassroots way of getting rid of unwanted stuff, reducing landfill and doing someone a favour all in one go.

I had a unwanted lawnmower in perfect working order that was set for a one-way trip to the dump.

Instead I put in on my local Freecycle list yesterday, offering it up to the first person who could come and collect it.

Within an hour of posting, a very nice chap called round the house and took it away, pleased as punch.

I got rid of my stuff, he got a free lawnmower and one less item ended up being buried in the ground for a thousand years. Everybody wins.

Now I just need to find a Freecycler with a Specialized S-Works Roubaix they're trying to offload.
