I have only praise for Freecycle. Eight years ago, when we downsized before moving to a senior community, we were able to find users for all types of household goods--with one exception. No one in sophisticated San Francisco wanted my collection of stuff for preparing and serving snails!

I'm surprised you didn't also mention PAFree, which has been in existence since 2003 and is extremely active, with close to 4000 members. It's also locally moderated and its rules are slightly different from those of the Freecycle group, but the idea is the same-- to keep useable items out of the landfill, and to encourage neighborly recycling. The link for the group is: Web Link

Used wine corks can also be used as plant markers in the garden. The only other items you'll need is one Sharpie to writewith, and a thin bambooo skewer for the stake ...or I often recycle my wooden coffee stirrers from Starbucks, to use as the stick to hold the Plant ID tag = cork-turned-garden-marker.
