Talk about deju vu all over again! In the 60s there was a place on Park Ave in Palo Alto, near where Frys now is, where you could take your recycling and things you didn't need but others might. There was also a place where you could share tools to fix your car or anything else. I think Stanford had a similar informal organization at that time.

Great idea. A lot of things get tossed because it's impossible to find a replacement for that cheap, specialized $0.29 thingamajig that broke. If volunteers can develop a resource list or a list of places where one could go to make a replacement part, that would also be very helpful. I'll definitely check it out and possibly volunteer.
