Curb-Alert Posts NOT Allowed

As of October 15th, 2017 the Somerville, MA © group does not allow curb-alert posts.

We've received complaints from members of our © group about these types of posts as they encourage many people to head in that direction for an item, spending a great deal of time, just to find out someone else has taken it. Many group members feel that this is unfair.

Please arrange a pickup time with other people individually as it will save a lot of trouble for others in the long run.

This is referenced in the Group Guidelines & Disclaimers ADMIN: "PICK UP. Arrange as you like. Generally, you'll wait until you get a handful of responses or maybe overnight, and then you can pick whomever you like! That's half the fun. Consider giving your starving local charity preference if one should respond. Arrange pickup with one person only, rather than "It's on the porch, whoever gets here first gets it." Otherwise you'll become unpopular pretty quickly with your fellow Freecycle group members. Also, only give your phone number to one person at a time or ask for the recipient's phone number. Otherwise you'll get swamped with phone calls."

We are sorry for any inconvenience this has caused. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the © moderators by clicking "contact moderators" at the top of the Somerville, MA group home page, or by navigating to
