Don't just recycle it: Freecycle it

To the editor:

After seeing the recent articles written in regards to recycling rates dwindling in Baker County I was inspired to write.

The Baker City Freecycle group is open to all who want to "recycle" that special something rather than throw it away.

Whether it's a chair, a fax machine, piano or an old door, feel free to post it. Or maybe you're looking to acquire something yourself! Nonprofit groups are also welcome to participate too!

One main rule: everything posted must be free. This group is part of The Freecycle Network, a nonprofit organization and a movement of people interested in keeping good stuff out of landfills. Check out for more information.
