Our mission

The aim of FreeTrade is simple: to facilitate the reuse of household and business items throughout Ireland and in doing so promoting reuse and waste prevention.

freetradeireland.ie is a free online reuse service which allows its users to pass on unwanted items for free, from beds and furniture to electronic goods and garden equipment and more. FreeTrade Ireland is a national reuse service funded under the EPA National Waste Prevention Programme and is championed by Mayo County Council.

The service allows you to post and advertise unused, unwanted and old items and materials on the website. If you have an item you no longer need then all you need to do is register which is quick, easy and free! Once you have registered and verified your FREE account you can then post a free ad for your item on the site. Then all you have to do is sit back and wait to receive that call or email from someone interested to arrange a viewing or collection of the item. No money changes hands and all items are absolutely free.
