Looking for free goods? There’s a website with a local user group to help.
Freecycle.org started in Tucson, Ariz., and now has local user groups in cities all over the nation, including one for Central Oregon.
The rules say everything must be posted for free, with no expectation of trading or bartering. Those with an old refrigerator taking up space in the garage can link with those who just happen to need one.
The goods can range from a chair to a fax machine to an old door. The one realm Freecycle stays away from is pets.
Freecycle is free to join. Consumers must then be accepted into the user group by a moderator.
