I don't know if this subject has been raised before. In my local area in Norfolk we have a website called Freecycle. People wishing to dispose of items OFFER them Free on this site, Anyone requiring an item will  advertise on this site as WANTED and if succesful obtain the items for Free.In this way good usable items are not just thrown away but recycled.

 Eye on Spain has a classified Ads section, Would a Freecycle section work on here, whereby people can post for items they wish to donate or items wanted, giving a rough location of the area they live in.
What do other members think?

We have Freecycle here in Herts too and it does work very well, we've donated a lot of things to people who need them, tv's, sofas, clothes, toys, audio equipment etc. The people who collect them are quite often setting up home for the first time with not enough spare cash to buy new or even second hand so its always gratefully received.  Its also a good way to prevent landfill sites being overloaded unnecessarily with things that are perfectly ok just not needed any more.  The question is, would members be prepared to travel quite long distances in some cases for something that by the time theyve paid for petrol would possibly make it a pricey aquisition?
Still a good idea though.
