Don’t throw it away – give it away on Freegle!
Offer and request free items on your local Freegle UK reuse community.
It's easy to offer an unwanted item that you want to get rid of, along with a photo. Anyone interested will get back in touch via the app - and you'll be notified by email. You choose who to give it to and arrange for them to come and pick it up.
If you fancy a freebie, ask for things that others are offering - or post a request. Keep an eye for wanted requests as you may have something that someone needs.
Everything must be free and legal. Some local communities have extra rules such as no pets.
Be safe and nice when making arrangements to meet - if you can't make it, say so immediately. Never pay courier fees for delivery - it is a scam.
Reusing items saves you money, clears your clutter, helps your neighbours, saves the world's resources and reduces the amount going to waste.

Dodgy when giving multiple items away
The recent update doesn't work too well. You upload a photo and write a description but once posted, the email going out to freeglers shows a photo from the previous post! I could only get round this by deleting and reinstalling the app. Very frustrating as when it worked before, it was great!
Sorry for the delay replying. Apologies. We have a fix for this which will be in the next release.
Much improved in recent versions
The most recent version of the app is much improved and I have also found the developers to be very responsive when I encountered an issue. They pushed a fix within a day.
Great idea shame about the time wasters
Never thought it would be so hard to give away a solidly built piece of furniture. The number of time wasters I have experienced will make me think twice about giving something away on the site. If it can’t be sold I would rather take it to the dump.
Sorry it didn't work so well for you but please don't send to the tip - there may be a furniture reuse charity near you that can pick up: http://www.frn.org.uk/donate.html
It can be tricky to move large items of furniture but that's no excuse for being unreliable. If you are offering a large item, you'd best say at the outset that it might need a van to pick up, say.
When you are chatting in the App you can tap on the i/info button to check out the user's recent activity which may help you choose someone reliable.
Swapping telephone numbers makes it easier to keep in touch if plans change.
Note: your post will have just gone to your nearest Freegle local group. You can post it again on nearby groups to reach more people.
