Please be aware that not all groups that are part of Freegle are actually called such. So there might be a group based in 'Anytown' that is part of Freegle but is called 'Anytown recycling' rather than 'Anytown Freegle'. Each group is free to call themselves what they wish but they are all listed on the main Freegle website. As an example, in South Staffordshire and parts of the West Midlands there is a mini network of Freeworld-Recycling groups who are all part of Freegle.

There is one more search engine to add to the free sites. As I can't post links, you'll find it as: yourstuff.store/free. It's a very smart search engine that lists on a map all free items offered on freecycle and gumtree. This way you don't have to subscribe to various groups beforehand and go through each listing. Instead, you can look on the map in your area and find all items offered for free in that area or you can do a word search and find all washing machines offered for free, for example.
My boyfriend developed this website as he was searching for a free printer and it took him too much time to search through all available threads and posts. So he spent some time developing this website and hopefully more people can use it. It is in the spirit of people sharing things and recycling them rather than throwing in the skip. He took from someone a printer that wasn't working, fixed it and now we have a very good laser colour printer. That's a bargain! I'm very proud of him and I hope this website will help many people. It also offers the possibility to post free items, take a photo from a phone and post it. This is a long overdue development as most free websites don't have the resources to develop the technology.
We use it every time we need something, so far got desk and chairs to use when we work from home. I love it and I wish more people knew about it as it's a very good search tool for free things.
