Welcome to the Nashville Freecycle group!
The Freecycle Network™ is made up of 5,270 groups with 8,983,043 members across the globe. It's a grassroots and entirely nonprofit movement of people who are giving (and getting) stuff for free in their own towns and thus keeping good stuff out of landfills.
Membership is open to residents of Nashville/Davidson County and free, and everything posted must be FREE, legal and appropriate for all ages. There is a list of acceptable zip codes for membership under a link. To view the items being given away or sought in Nashville, you must be a member of this group.
Our goal is to reduce waste by connecting people who are throwing away unwanted items with others seeking the same items. No item is too big or too small; but since this is a FREECYCLE list, ALL items must be 100% (THAT'S RIGHT, you got it) FREE! It's an innovative concept that harnesses the power of the Internet to do what the Internet does best -- eliminate the middleman and empower the individual. NashvilleFreecycle allows for personal contact between donor and recipient -- each gets exactly what they want, and nobody is considered a 'charity case.' (Indeed, many people both give and receive items on a regular basis.) It's a perfect consumer-friendly circle: no overhead, no intermediaries, no money changing hands, no waste and no catch, and everyone's happy!!!
Freecycle...one simple, brilliant idea that's changing the world, one gift at a time. Check out freecycle.org for other cities and info on the movement! After you have applied for membership, you will receive a letter that includes 4 questions. Membership requires you answering these qustions! You will need to have read this home page, questions do refer to them for answers. Along with that you will be sent NashvilleFreecycle(TM) Etiquette, please read because some questions pertain to it.
If you are already a member, you may use the "Post" tab on the top right of this page to make your post to the local group. Otherwise, go to the Yahoo Group linked to below and click on "Join" first in order to view the posts. Thanks so much and have fun!
