Best Answer

Freecycle org is a worldwide movement made up of many individual groups across the globe. The motto is "One person's trash can truly be another's treasure!"

It's a grassroots movement of people who are giving (& getting) stuff for free in their own towns. Each local group is run by a local volunteer moderator (them's good people). Membership is free.

The Freecycle Network was started in May 2003 to promote waste reduction in Tucson's downtown and help save desert landscape from being taken over by landfills. Freecycle provides individuals and non-profits an electronic forum to "recycle" unwanted items.


Freecycle began as a grassroots movement that is now utilized by people all over the world. Freecycle is both a concept and a network. Though the concept of freecyling is much older, the network began in 2003 in Tucson, Arizona with only a few dozen people. Today, the Freecycle network is a non-profit organization serving to help people and reduce the amount of waste going into landfills across the globe.
