Chicago Freecycle Guidelines and Disclaimer Updated 9/15/17
The following are the group guidelines/rules for Chicago Freecycle:
KEEP OFFERS/WANTEDS FREE, LEGAL & APPROPRIATE FOR ALL AGES
NO alcohol, tobacco, firearms or other weapons, profanity or sexual content, medications (of any kind, including over-the-counter supplements, vitamins, anything prescribed by a doctor, etc.).
NO potentially harmful items (poison, spray paint, etc.).
Never send money for anything offered on Freecycle (this includes money for shipping).
All copyrighted material must be the original media. Full disclosure of intent to resell is required.
NO POLITICS, NO SPAM, NO MONEY, NO PERSONAL ATTACKS/RUDENESS OR PROSELYTIZING
NO PERSONAL ADS
Posting oneself or another person is not allowed. There are many fine Internet dating sites better suited to this purpose.
NO POSTS ABOUT LIVE ANIMALS OR FISH FOR ANY PURPOSES
BE NICE AND BE BRIEF Give a brief description of the item in the subject line, and a quick description in the body. No personal information (single mom, disabled, etc.) or reason is to be included.
We are all volunteers and we've got a great little community here so when you arrange to pick up an item from another Freecycle member, it is basic good manners to accommodate them as much as possible in terms of scheduling, and then be punctual.
PICK UP NO alley pick-ups, or other locations not on your property are to be listed.
Arrange as you like. When replying to an item, indicate when you will pick up.
