As of September 1, 2018, Oakland no longer allows Curb Alerts. We should never have allowed them in the first place. The founders of Freecycle don't want to publish your private information on a public website. They want to keep the system free from unknown people visiting your home, spam calling your phone, and sending you unsolicited emails. They built a system for people who care about where their stuff goes after it leaves home.

Thank you to the majority of you who understand this by posting properly. Everyone, please read the ADMIN messages on the Oakland front page. Posts which don't follow this Curb Alert ban by including a phone number or address in any way will be deleted. The exception: public entities posting free items can disclose their public locations.

While we have your attention, please read the other ADMIN messages on the Oakland landing page. They still apply and following them will help your moderators keep Freecycle in its present good functioning condition.
