32 SSG Freecycle Open to all SSG Staff who want to "recycle" that special something rather than throw it away. Whether it's a chair, a fax machine, piano or an old door, feel free to post it. One constraint: everything posted must be FREE -- you simply post an offering on the SSG Freecycle page. Or, maybe you're looking to acquire something yourself. Simply respond to a posted offer or post a request, and you just might get it. After that, it's up to the giver to decide who receives the gift and to set up a pickup time for passing on the treasure. Our main rule: Everything posted must be free, legal, and appropriate for all ages.
