Comparing what happens in London to what happens in a rural location anywhere is a bit strange.Now Retired wrote: ↑Mon Oct 07, 2019 8:33 pmIn London, the FreeCycle website is brilliant - post a photo and location and within minutes maybe 5 or 6 people have replied. Some collect within an hour or two too.
Yes, again the local déchetterie may indeed have a home for some items - it's just a shame that giving to causes is so difficult here.
I’m going up to northern France next week and a fair bit of the time that I’m there will re-allocating a lot items that have been given to a good cause there. The largest proportion of the re-location will be delivering broken or totally unsuitable items to the déchèterie / recyclerie although some things will be being passed on to the causes that will actually appreciate them. Giving to causes can be extremely easy here but unfortunately it is too often used as a means of rubbish disposal.
