1) Freecycle: Freecycle is an online community of people who are interested in giving or obtaining usable items. If you have something that you don’t need but is clean and in working condition, post it on Freecycle and often you will find a new home for it by the end of the day. To join Freecycle, visit www.freecycle.org, search for the Marlborough, Hudson, and Sudbury group, and follow the instructions to join the group. Once the moderator has approved your membership, you can offer something to the group, and after your item has been picked up, you can offer more things or accept things too. Our family uses Freecyle often to recycle children’s toys and books, and I was able to borrow a music stand for my son. It’s a friendly group, and you might even meet a neighbor there.
