Keeping unwanted things out of landfill in Buxton and the surrounding area
Welcome to Buxton Freegle. Part of the Freegle organisation. Free giving locally and easily.
When you have something you no longer have room for or no longer require, but that still has some usable life in it, Freegle helps you to give it away to someone who wants it, will come and collect it from you and will say "thank you". Don't bin it or take it to the tip, Freegle it!
Local non-profit organisations, Schools and Charities etc. are welcome.
