Go here and type in where you live http://www.freecycle.org/
Then you'll find groups close to you. People in the groups post things they don't want anymore for free and let other people come pick the item/s up so they don't go to a landfill. It's cool. I got rid of a MP3 player on there and almost got a few tanks. If you have yahoo, they'll send you a message when people post things.
