Round our way, people leave stuff out for others to take or put it on the local Facebook group. I’ve given stuff away as well as gotten stuff. I’ve had a few bikes, a practically unused petrol mower (I then gave our electric one to next door), a child seat for a bike and an unopened tin of block paving seal.

I do that too, trouble is it is difficult to prevent the roving scrap dealers taking advantage of things which are left out at my gates. I don't like to see useable items going to landfill, be it stuff I don't need, or anyone else if I can find a use for it. My last acquisition was several sets of vertical blinds from a neighbour, with which I managed to replace all of mine, along with spares. My originals were not nearly as good. All they needed was shortening by a few inches. Then they chucked out an almost new plastic water tank for the loft, when they switched to a combi, so I 'claimed' that too for the day when my steel tank might need replacing.
