SAULT STE. MARIE - The City of Sault Ste. Marie encourages residents to take part in Sault Freecycle Day on Saturday, September 21, 2013.

It's nice that the people who need the freebies will benefit . Too bad you can't stop the scalpers who will be out early and loading up as much as possible to take back to their nest and have a yard sale. But I guess some call that being an entrepreneur. :)

A few years back, they had something like a city-wide garage sale. You sold on Saturday and recycled on Sunday! It was a huge success, but they never continued it.
Too bad, but this is good too!

That would also eliminate the scalpers!

Maybe the people selling the freebies @ garage sales need the money, I would hope that's the case. If it's miserly skin flints, I pray that karma gets them! :)
