Talybont Energy’s Freecycle Day


On Saturday 13th February, Talybont-on-Usk Energy held its first ever “Freecycle” Day. Members of our community were invited to bring along unwanted Christmas Gifts or things they no longer had a use for so others could maybe find a use for them. The idea was to share useful things and keep them out of landfill.

From the moment the doors opened, people were arriving with a remarkable selection of things to freecycle – from a hamster cage to an unused Blackberry, from a lawnmower to a pogo stick. Then there was the excitement of seeing if there was anything we could find useful and certainly there was! Henderson Hall was buzzing.

As well as freecycling, we were pleased to host the Glasu-sponsored free energy advice surgeries. Apparently, these were booked fully all morning.

And, of course, at 12 noon, there was the launch of our 2010 Green Car project.

If anyone missed the event and still has stuff to freecycle or things they’d like to find, we strongly recommend the Brecon branch of Freecycle online.
