Freecycle-SilverSpringMD  is a community reuse group. We are all about recycling. Our aim is to reduce the number of useable items that end up in the landfill, and share our unwanted items with our neighbors. 

The Basic Rules: Keep it 
FREE, LEGAL,and APPROPRIATE for all ages. Sorry, no trading, bartering or borrowing. 
If you want to recycle something rather than throw it away, start here . Whether it's a swingset, a fax machine, Grandma's china or an old door, feel free to post it. Or maybe you want to get something that someone else doesn't want! 
If you live in Silver Spring, Takoma Park, Wheaton, Kensington and several other communities in Montgomery County, Maryland, Freecycle-SilverSpringMD is the group for you. We do not serve District of Columbia, or other Maryland counties.
