Bristol Freecycle Day
A freecycle day would allow Bristol residents to give away usable but unwanted items to others instead of throwing them away. This would fit with Bristol's ethos as a green capital by reducing waste, and also be a great cost saver to people struggling on low incomes to pick up an ultimate bargin!
Register the items you plan to leave outside on a central online database which people can search in advance for items they need. Items should be left at the curbside on the 'freecycle day'. Local charities would be invited to clear away any remaining items on the morning after the 'freecycle day' and any remaining unclaimed items collected after that by Bristol City Council for disposal.
Why the contribution is important
Reduces the city's waste production and carbon footprint by allowing more things to be reused rather than thrown away.
Helps low income families to find greatly needed items at zero cost!
