    Thumbs up Getting Rid of Bricks

    G'Day Everyone.
    Jake here, I live in the western Suburbs of melbourne,
    and I wish to get rid of approx 600 red bricks. They are left over bricks from when the house was first built and they are taking too much room at home, so I wish to get rid of them for free. None of them are cracked and they are all good.

    If anyone could please reply back to me if you live in the melbourne area, and you are happy to pick them up.

    Cheers,

    Jake

    A small sample and a sign in my front yard got rid of mine in 2 days.
    Growing old is compulsory, growing up is not.

    or for getting rid of junk try freecycle. Just stick it into google.

    you could also list them on gumtree. They have a section for each city and it's free to list there. this is the link for Melbourne Free Classifieds | Buy, Sell, Jobs, Property & More | Gumtree Melbourne Region

    Hi Xievon, Jake here.
    Just read your post on getting rid of the bricks.
    I still have them and a happy for you to take them all.
    I have attached a couple of photos of the bricks. In the photos you will notice the house is using the same bricks, that will give you a good idea of the colour of brick. They are in good condition, just need a hose off to clean the dust off them, thats all.
    I live in the Point Cook area. If you are keen to grab them, just reply back to this message, and in a week or two ill leave them out the front of my house, so you can pick them up or whenever its most convenient for you to come out to the western suburbs to pick them up.

    Cheers.imgp1401.jpg
