A local resident suggested that we set up a section of the forum for offering stuff that you may no longer have a need for but which may still have value.

So this is the result. An area of the forum where people can offer stuff (free-of-charge) that is still of value, but no longer needed.

Over to you.

People are also posting free stuff in the classifieds.

There is already something very similar setup called freecycle and is widely used throughout the country.

http://www.freecycle.org/group/UK/East

Well worth a look!

Free cycles fine but you have to be seriously fast to get stuff. Also a lot of folk are trawling it to resell items.

I have put stuff on but stopped due to the nutty amount of emails and failed collections.

just thought a free forum in BP might make recycling a little more pleasurable.

Everything has a value to someone and I hate to see stuff going to landfill.

I got a new 150 flymo from the dump recently-collared the guy as he was getting it from his car.

The reason for disposal.

"too heavy for his mum to use"!!
