FreeTrade Ireland bring reuse to Dundalk

Are you looking to declutter your home or business?

Or are you on hunt for new items to furnish your home or business but just don’t have the cash right now?

If so Ireland’s online reuse service,, might be the answer for you.

DKIT will host a FreeTrade Ireland Open Day and all are welcome.


The FreeTrade Ireland team will be in the Syndicate Room of the T.K Whitaker Building in Dundalk IT from 1pm on Wednesday October 19th to let you know where you can reuse your old items and how the service can be of benefit to you!


Team members will be on hand to provide a website demonstration of how to use the service and how to post your unwanted items up on the FreeTrade Ireland in just 4 clicks. Both before and after this session there will be an opportunity to sign up to the FreeTrade Ireland service – and remember it’s all FREE – free membership, free ads, free items and freed up space at Whiteriver Landfill!

There are currently 113 members registered and using the FreeTrade Ireland service in Louth. So far 46 FREE items were passed on and reused. The people involved with these items were saved the cost of hiring a skip and the hassle of lugging items down to the recycling centre over the weekend while the new owners have more money in their pockets! The reuse of these items diverted 570kg of waste from landfill and realised a financial saving to users of over €5,000 euro.

FreeTrade Ireland has developed a smart phone app to ensure that all our users on the move never miss an item. With one simple touch you can now check out the latest items posted on Free Trade Ireland!

The FreeTrade Ireland app is available for FREE from iTunes and Android Market. FreeTrade Ireland also has it’s own facebook page where you can find out what the item of the day is and check in on what members are saying about the service.

FreeTrade Ireland is funded by Department of the Environment, Community and Local Government the Local Authorities in Ireland.
