    There is this Yahoo group that is called Freecycle on the web. It is a nationwide thing but it is supposed to put you in touch with local people who have something they want to give away for free instead of it going to the landfill.
    You also can ask for something if needed but the rule is that it shouldn't be for major items. This part of Freecycle is pathetic.

    Here are 3 of the posts that hit this morning. The e-mail address and number has been changed.

    Nothing like being resourceful. I'm wondering if he will soon be posting at that site for more customers but it seems that most of those freecyclers are asking more than giving.

    So does anyone have anything to donate to me? I'm needing a new trimmer, backpack blower (Redmax EBZ 8000 preferred) a new truck, a storage shed, a million dollars :waving: :p :waving:
