The Freecycle Network™ is made up of 4,580 groups with 5,690,000 members across the globe. It's a grassroots and entirely nonprofit movement of people who are giving (& getting) stuff for free in their own towns. It's all about reuse and keeping good stuff out of landfills.
The Toronto PARKers got some material through Freecycle - and there is also a Brisbane Freecycle Group.
Remember your PARKs don't have to cost a lot and FREE is good!
