Sorry i should have given you a link:

Good Luck :thumbsup:

If you do use freecycle and manage to get a useful desktop/computer- have a look around at things you have yourself, and offer them on freecycle - thats the way it works i.e give something back. My sister uses it this way and swears by it.

Freecycle is changing its name to Freegle or something along those lines. Worth a look - cracking site.

Yes lots of people do, but it's really annoying when people ask for your items and you wait in and they don't collect, i recently did this with a kids trampoline, 3 people I gave my address out to until someone actually turned up to collect it. To be honest I was left feeling like why should I bother :x
