Waste Not, Want Not

Published 13/12/2013 00:00:00

According to Government figures, we generate about 177 million tonnes of waste every year in England alone. Businesses and households simply dispose of old furniture, books, electronics, and other general items which they no longer need. But what is thrown away can sometimes be useful for someone else.

Deron Beal realised this and came up with a solution - he set up Freecycle. The website, an entirely grassroots and non-profit organisation, allows people to list online things which they no longer need, and matches them with people who are looking for similar items, and arranges them to obtain them for free, ensuring that old items are re-used and kept away from landfill. A quick glance in my local area shows that people are looking for or giving away bedside tables, cooking pots and pans, scanners, bikes, clothes and a piano.

The site now has over 6 million members around the world – and we at ASC congratulate the organisation on its success!
