The freeuseit.org website will permanently close on 30th September 2015

We'd like to thank all those who have supported the website over the last few years and congratulate everyone for helping to reuse over 200 tonnes of items, including furniture, clothing and outdoor equipment.

Freeuseit.org has seen a gradual decrease in use as alternatives gained widespread popularity and we no longer feel that the website brings additional benefits to Leicestershire residents.

Although we are sad to see freeuseit.org close, there are now many alternative websites and resources available for those looking to find and give items for reuse such as www.uk.freecycle.org and www.ilovefreegle.org, along with dedicated local Facebook groups. Additionally, there are online auction sites offering a forum to buy and sell second hand goods cheaply. It's never been easier to reuse online!

Also local reuse groups have come together to make donating of items for reuse easier by forming the LeicesterShire and Rutland Reuse Network and providing a new and developing website dedicated to reuse called www.LRRN.org/. There are also many charity shops which will accept donations of items to support their causes. Visit the Charity Retail Association website to find your nearest charity shops.

Please note that as we wind-down the freeuseit.org website:

1) You can still find a range of items advertised. Adverts already on the site, and those placed before 14th September will remain on the site until they are taken for reuse, or until the site closes on 30th September (whichever comes first).

2) Unfortunately we won't be able to list new items from 14th September 2015. If you have something to offer for reuse after that date and would like to advertise it, please seek an alternative service provider.
