Today in Lambeth if you walk from one stree to another stree, you will see unwanted items people throw away such as bed, television, clothes, furniture, printer, toys, sofa and computer can pass to someone in your community.

Recycling is an effective way to cut down on the use of these limited resources as well as promoting community involvement in the process.

If you haven't heard yet, there is wonderful organization called Lambeth Free Give ( http://www.freegive.co.uk/p/lambeth.htm ). Lambeth Free Give Group connects people who are giving and getting unwanted items for free in their own towns. It's all about reuse and keeping good stuff out of landfills and, at the same time, helping someone in your community by gifting them the item you no longer need. Another benefit of using Lambeth Free Give Group is that it encourages poeple to get rid of junk that we no longer need and promote community involvement in the process. By using Lambeth Free Give Group, not only are you able to get rid of your item with the minimum of fuss; you will also be doing your part in stopping another reusable item ending up in a landfill. Lambeth Free Give Group is open to all residents of Lambeth borough who want to recycle their unwanted items, feel free to post it. Or maybe you're looking to acquire something yourself. Find a group near you. It's completely free to join and everything posted must be free. Visit Lambeth Free Give Group page at http://www.freegive.co.uk/p/lambeth.htm

This is a great idea! Encouraging people to reuse and recycle things by giving them away and not sending them to the garbage bin!

I think Lambeth Free Give Group is a great way to build a bond in the community and it's always good to recycle. I think it's a fantastic idea and everyone should join!
