I hope the recycling champion is aware of Freecycle.
Freecycle is an internet based group thet helps its members give away items they no longer require, or ask for items that they want.
There are several local Freecycle groups including Southend, Benfleet, Rayleigh, Wickford, Canvey, Basildon, Billericay etc.
for more information or to join please visit www.freecycle.org
Everything must be Free with no strings attached!
Things given away include:
Furniture, Ovens, Televisions, Fridhes, washing machines, clothes, books, cars, toys, pushchairs, beds, lights, patio furniture, sheds, greenhouses, hi-fi, games consoles, games etc.
