GreaterBoston-reuse -- Folks offering (or requesting) free stuff in the Boston metro area.


About GreaterBoston-reuse
English (USA)

GreaterBoston-reuse is a resource for folks exchanging free items within the Boston metro area. (This list owes a conceptual debt to the "reuse" mailing list at MIT, which is officially restricted to current affiliates of that institution.)

If you have stuff to clear out of your house or apartment, or you scrounged a great find at the town transfer station but you can't figure out what to do with it, or you notice something cool at curbside which you don't want to go to waste -- let the list know. The idea is to find reuseable items the best possible homes.

Rules and guidelines for the list are here. Please read them before you subscribe -- thanks.
