freeTOreuse - One Man's Garbage...


Nope, this isn't a post about Toronto's looming garbage strike. This is a post about the yummy goodness of stuff: expired junk to some, new found Toronto treasure to others.

"Started in Toronto with a passion for helping others, freeTOreuse is a one of a kind group. Where those who join do so out of the kindness of their hearts. Posting belongings they no longer need and asking for those they surely do."

Imagine a simple, interactive classified ads operation where all the items are free for the taking and you have freeTOreuse. The group is almost two years old with about 6000 members in the GTA and growing. Sign up via Yahoo Groups and get a cruise-on for stuff you don't even know you need yet (via email, web or RSS) or post the clutter you've been dying to give away. And if you actually are in need of something, ask for it. People are often parting with some pretty great gear like sewing machines, record players, old electronics, furniture, bikes, books and more.

Once you make the connection with a poster, arrange to pickup/deliver the goods. It's ultimate thrift shopping from home!
