eBay alternatives: the freecycle movement.

My favorite newspaper brought to me yesterday news of
a "freecycle" movement, both nationally and locally that
seems to match the goals of many listmembers.

   http://www.freecycle.org **
      Lists free things that people don't want to see thrown.
      Allows matching by locality, many cities/counties listed.
      At first glance may be too dependant on yahoo groups.

      Local to NY.
      Free, Cheap, Available or Wanted all included.

Looks like a good start, anyway.
Perhaps the free listings on the VCM
   ( http://marketplace.vintage.org )
could be networked in to one or more of the above.
I am in awe of all three websites BTW.
