Any Good to You often shortened to AGTY, is an organisation founded in the UK that aims to reduce landfill by encouraging people to give away items they no longer need but which are too good to throw away. It has similar goals to Freecycle and Freegle.

History[edit]

AGTY was formed in September 2009 after the lead developers became frustrated with limitations of their local Freecycle group.[1] This was at a similar time many of the UK Freecycle groups decided to break away from its US roots following disagreements and dismissal of long standing UK moderators.[2]
