Group Description

Welcome to Oceanside Nanaimo Freecycle

Freecycle is an environmental initiative to keep useful items out of the landfill. Don't throw unwanted items out - offer on freecycle! It will reduce waste and declutter your life.

Everything must be FREE with no strings attached. Whatever it is - see rules below - post it as an offer. Looking for something? Post a wanted (see rules below).

Offers and requests are sent out as emails to list members. To participate send an email (or click 'post' on the left) and fill out your message subject line like this:

1 - Specify Offer or Wanted

2 - Specify Item name

3 - Specify Location For an OFFER, actual location of item. For a WANTED, where you will pick up.
(eg. "Offer - Bird Cage - Parksville" or "Wanted - Men's Bike - Cedar to Parksville")


Taken notices: To reduce traffic, use taken notices sparingly. If possible, respond those asking for an item with a "sorry, it's taken". If you receive many requests, please post your Taken message with a phrase like: 'after many requests' or 'taken, with a long back-up list', so the moderators know you received many requests.

  • MAX 5 WANTEDS PER MONTH/MAX 5 ITEMS PER POST (ONCE/MONTH FOR SAME ITEM)
  • NO TRADING, BORROWING, BUYING, SELLING, ADVERTISING, SERVICES, JOBS
