Reuse and recycle your bathroom items…

By now almost everyone is recycling some elements of their domestic rubbish – especially with the threatened advent of fortnightly rubbish collections and charges for overloaded bins. But how can you make the best of bigger waste items, especially if there’s a bit of use still left in them?

If you’ve got bathroom furniture or other items that are still functional, just unwanted by you, what can you do? Rather than taking them to the dump, consider passing on to someone else who might find they’re just what’s needed.

But how to do this? The Freecycle network is a worldwide movement of people who are giving (and getting) stuff for free in their own towns. Freecycle groups match people who have things they want to get rid of with people who can use them with the aim of keeping usable items out of landfills.
