Learn how easy it is to Sign Up and Login to Freecycle.org
Freecycling is the process to increase the life-cycle of things that would be still good to us to use but you may no longer want or need the item(s). This prevents the unwanted item(s) from being sent to the landfill or getting into trash cans. Freecycle .org is a community of people who donate things that they no longer use to allow other people to pick these items up for free. These groups of people who join Freecycle.org thus increase the usefulness of things by giving away their items to those who need them. It also helps people get rid of all the clutter that they accumulate around their homes. This community has become very large in a short time period though there are still millions of people who are not even aware that this organization exists. We have put together this tutorial for people who don't know how to become a member of this fast growing community. We have posted this tutorial to help teach you how to sign up as a member and login to the Freecycle.org website. Enjoy!
