“Thanks”

Antonio K.
9/2/21

As a result, we purchased a small waste incinerator from them, which, for example, can be installed and used in a greenhouse. Such a stove is made on the principle of solid fuel stoves. In which garbage mixed with chips is placed. We took small sizes, so after experimenting, we realized that our own garbage was enough to use it, and at first we also intended to dispose of the neighbor's garbage in this way.

“A Great Website Has Been Ruined”

Mycroft S.
8/24/21

This website used to be simple to use, have a slick & easy interface and was user friendly. You were presented with a simple list of items on offer and any you wanted to look at you would click on to see more. Nothing fancy, just simple and functional. HOWEVER, they decided to mess it all around in May this year, it's now slow, the interface is user hostile and it loads picures of everything, even stuff that has alredy gone (who thought that was a good idea, sucking up one's data for no good reason?) and you only get a few items load and have to keep clicking the 'more' button and the site is a horror to navigate. I was a regular user, both donating and sometimes collecting items, now this website is so bad I have regretfully been dumping things into landfill at my local tip as the website is so bad! If the freecycle web designers read this review then PLEASE upload the old website and take the new monstrosity down for good!

Started using this tool a couple weeks ago. Personally I think the idea is great however there aren`t many people on the site and 2 of my ads there were just left unanswered. So, to sum up, the thing is good, it just needs more popularity.

As far as I use this tool, I find it quite useful and it always helps me to understand how to do everything correctly.

I have been a freecycler for over a year now and have kept many things out of landfills as a result. If you are setting up housekeeping, it is a great place to post your wants. If you are downsizing, a wonderful way to empty out the clutter. I have been on both sides of the freecycle model many times and have met some great people and had much luck doing both the giving and the receiving. Give it a try!

This is a brillaint idea. I pesonally gave away one cd player and garden furniture. I got a washing machine and shelves. It's great when you've started renting and don't want to spend too much money in furniture.

This is a great idea. You can recycle goods that you would other wise throw away or are too embarrassed to sell on craiglist. Pay it forward by giving to others and you never know what goodies you'll get back. I got rubby duckies for my wife's baby shower.
