Give & get free stuff in your local Freecycle, Freegle and Full Circles groups.

With trash nothing, it's easy to give away your unwanted but reusable items to people in your local community and find free things that other people are giving away. Everything is always free with no strings attached.

Freecycling works through local, volunteer run communities and not every city or town has an active community yet. The most active communities have members like you who help grow their community by telling their friends and family.

Here a just a few of the things you can find (& give away) for free:

building materials
& much more!

It's easy to use, simply post what you have to give away and request things that you want and other members of the community will contact you if they can help.

Doesn’t seem right

I just downloaded the app for the first time after being a Freecycle member for years and getting daily update emails. It’s nice to know about other groups in my area but I live in a metropolitan area and the emails I get have multiple items posted daily. I’m not seeing the same things in the app or nearly the volume.

I also had an issue logging into my account. I used a yahoo account but when I tried to use my pw they said I didn’t have an account associated with that email address. I had to kinda create a new account with that yahoo address.

I’m hopeful things will be worked out and I can use the app instead of logging in on a computer. Maybe my new account has to go through moderation or something.

Works well, but could used a few improvements that would make truly great!

I’ve been using this app for about a month now to help clear a friend’s house & I’ve been impressed with how useful it’s been! I know it’s not Freecycle but seems to work well in my area. However, I’ve been posting so many things that it’s easy to mix up who wanted what when I look at my inbox. I have to go into each person’s thread to figure it out. It would be great if they could somehow add a small picture of the item(s) you’ve promised that person (or that that person has replied about) for that person’s thread, so you know immediately at a glance when looking at the inbox what they wanted. Right now, I have to go into each person’s thread to remember what they wanted. so this would be a big help!

I also wish I could reach out to a larger community instead of just my Ellicott city Freecycle community.

I’ve had a few other issues with the app, but this review is long enough, so stopping here. This is the major improvement I’d like to see!

Thanks for the feedback. The latest version of the app should make it much easier to see who is messaging about what. If you have other ideas or feedback about how the app could be improved, please email us at

Useful and well organized

The app and website are great!

I really appreciate how easy trash nothing is to use and to set to my preferences. Other groups for giving things away in our area are hard to navigate, because they aren’t logically sorted and are often clogged with items that have already been gifted. With trash nothing, I can easily choose to look at items within my desired distance that are still available, and it shows me the ones that I haven’t seen yet first. Seems obvious and intuitive, but makes a huge difference and is executed well here.

This is a great tool for keeping your items out of the landfill and for giving new life to used things.
