Go to www.streetbank.com – a website which shows you the skills or things your neighbours are willing to share, loan or give away. You’ll be able to see everything in your square mile that your neighbours are offering. You’ll be helping to build the community, save money and help the environment all in one. I’ve joined and it would be great if you could too! If you like it feel free to tell your friends - I've just emailed some of my neighbours and already have a DVD to watch later this week!
There is a good page with Frequently asked questions and a short video: http://www.streetbank.com/faq
Of course don't forget there is also Freegle and Freecycle for finding a new home for stuff:
