Curbside recycling vs. online recycling

IMG_1973w800.jpg We've not only been making good use of our curb to get rid of stuff that otherwise might end up in the landfill.

Robbie's been also using a website called Freecycle for items that either don't get taken from the curb or for ones that can't be put out in the rain.

"The Freecycle Network is made up of many individual groups across the globe. It's a grassroots and entirely nonprofit movement of people who are giving (& getting) stuff for free in their own towns."

Yahoo Groups (online discussion lists) are used for communications. There is a Northfield Freecycle group and another one for Rice-Steele County.
