Freecycle comes to Marlow

| |

There is now a Marlow based version of the very popular “Freecycle” website.  You might be familiar with it from similar groups already set up in Henley and High Wycombe. Now we have our own!

For those who don’t know – The group matches people who have things they need to get rid of with people who can use them, all for free.

According to the main website “The Freecycle Network is made up of 4,975 groups with nearly 9 million members around the world. It’s a nonprofit movement of people who are giving (and getting) stuff for free in their own towns. It’s all about reuse and keeping good stuff out of landfills. By giving freely with no strings attached, members of The Freecycle Network help instill a sense of generosity of spirit as they strengthen local community ties and promote environmental sustainability and reuse.”

Local resident Alan Macmillan Orr told us “I decided to start a marlow group after noticing loads of skips all over town when people were renovating their houses or simply deciding that they want to replace the items with new ones. With recycling and reducing our consumption high on the environmental topic list, it seemed almost criminal to allow perfectly serviceable items to end up in landfill.”

The site is brand new, hot off the press, just launched … so there might not be much on there right now, but if you have got something to shift – give it a go!

The Marlow Freecylce Group website is here: (They also have a Facebook page)

The site also contains instructions on how to sign up to and use the service.

Membership is free!
