Welcome to Freecycle Menlo Park, where one person's trash is another's treasure! We are "changing the world one gift at a time". Our goal is to reduce waste by connecting people who are throwing away unwanted items with others seeking the same items (and have a little fun in the process). No item is too big or too small; but since this is a FREEcycle list, ALL items must be 100% FREE. Keep it free, legal & appropriate for all ages.

Freecycle lies somewhere between the garage sale and the dump, and is much cooler than either. 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. Unlike traditional charitable organizations that accept people's castoffs and sell them for low prices in unappealing shops (or end up taking them to the dump anyway), Freecycle allows for personal contact between donor and recipient -- each gets exactly what they want, and nobody is considered a 'charity case.' (Indeed, many Freecycle members 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.
