About the Free Market

The Twin Cities Free Market SM is an innovative reuse program created by the zero-waste organization Eureka Recycling to divert usable and repairable items from the waste stream. The Free Market program was the first web based residential exchange program that specifically targeted the exchange of reusable and durable household goods. As of January 2014 the Twin Cities Free Market has grown to include over 600,000 participants since it began in 1998 and has facilitated more than 120,000 exchanges. Over 13.1 million pounds of reusable goods have been saved from landfills and incinerators!
