Welcome to the Bismarck-Mandan, North Dakota Freecycleâ„¢ Network!

Our goal is to reduce waste by connecting people who are throwing away unwanted items with others seeking the same items (and have a little fun in the process). No item is too big or too small; but since this is a Freecycle list, ALL items must be 100% (that’s right, you got it) free.

Using Freecycle lies somewhere between the garage sale and the dump, and is much cooler than either. It harnesses the power of the Internet to eliminate the middleman and empower the individual. Unlike traditional charitable organizations that accept people’s castoffs and sell them for low prices in unappealing shops (or end up taking them to the dump anyway), Freecycle allows for personal contact between donor and recipient — each gets exactly what they want, and nobody is considered a ‘charity case.’ (Indeed, many members both give and receive items on a regular basis.) It’s a perfect consumer-friendly circle: no overhead, no intermediaries, no money changing hands, no waste and no catch, and everyone’s happy.

The Bismarck-Mandan Freecycle Network serves the greater Bismarck-Mandan area; people living in neighboring towns are also welcome. Keep in mind the transportation.
