Bassetlaw Freegle is a site set up to offer to other residents, items which they would normally send to recycling centres, for re-use for FREE.

Freegle is a site synonymous with re-use. The reason behind Bassetlaw wanting to promote this is that, within the Waste Hierarchy, Re-use is the best way to dispose of any unwanted items.

Freegle is, as the name suggests, free to use and anything that is posted on it is Free, so it is cheaper than having to find a “man in a van” to come and collect and dispose of any unwanted item and also knowing that the item collected is not going to be fly-tipped.

All residents need to do is register with Freegle and put up any items that they want to dispose of. If anybody wants that particular item, they contact the “disposer” via the web-site and if the “disposer” is happy for the item to go, then the “disposer” and the person who wants the item agree a time of collection – Simple.

Please note, everything put on the web-site must be legal and free.

Advertising of animals is strictly prohibited.

Laptops and computers for schools

Have you heard about the scheme where you can donate laptops and computer tablets to schools to assist learning during the current pandemic?
If you have a computer or lap top that you could spare please contact the local primary schools who will be most pleased to accept them.
Although the schools will wipe any programs and data from the machines it would be wise to de-personalise any machine you may wish to donate.
