Ever heard of Freecycle? It’s a good way to pass on items you no longer need, and a much greener alternative than the landfill. The Freecycle Network covers most of the country and Baton Rouge has it’s own group. Basically you post the item you want to get rid of and local people will respond. You can also post if you are looking for an item. You’ll be surprised what people give away!
It’s easy and completely free to join and all items are free. Freecycle groups use a yahoo groups page for listings so you do need to have a yahoo email address to read the listings.
