Freecycle is nearing its third anniversary in Corvallis, but the organization has nothing to do with a bicycle event.
The Corvallis group of the Freecycle Network has nearly 1,000 users who post online when they have an item they want to give away or when they are seeking something they need but cannot afford to buy retail.
Christine Dashiell started the local group, and she is its moderator, meaning that she attempts to ensure that the site is posting legitimate offers. People need to join to participate.
Freecycle’s main aim: “It’s just keeping items out of the landfill — and changing the world through that,” she said.
