I know that there is a freecycle site for different areas. Here’s an idea from an old job I had 8 years ago. The company had an intranet site similar to free cycle just for employees to post what ever they wanted to reduce or recycle, and others who needed similar items could reply. This would be an intranet site just for library employees. Think of all the stuff we could recycle and save from the garbage dump, and we can stop posting paper all over the board, but post it electronically.

Another thought, instead of the intranet site, the items could be posted on the green blog, under its own Freecycle caption.

Great idea, Vic! I like the thought of posting what we have to get rid of electronically instead of posting paper on an actual bulletin board. Someone might need something that another employee does not any longer.
