Message regarding Freecycle.org - Spring, TX and Covid-19
Freecycle is a global community, and right now our community is under threat from a global pandemic. While we remain committed to reducing waste and keeping items out of the landfill, our main concern is the health and well-being of our members.
We ask all members to practice extreme care when participating in Freecycle. Post only essentials and avoid all contact by leaving items on the porch and disinfecting accordingly. The posting of critical necessities --where permitted-- may enable the home bound to avoid stores and direct social contact during a time of great need.
Please, when making a post, do consider the following to remain safe and healthy:
• Only post essential items / basic necessities; • Avoid all contact with the recipient: place item on your porch for others; • Do not participate in the gifting process if you are experiencing any symptoms; • Before picking up or gifting: wash hands, wipe the items down with a disinfecting wipe; • After picking up, disinfect items and wash hands; • Also, please disinfect regularly-used surfaces like gates or the table where item is left;
Essential items may include: canned goods, masks, protective gloves, disinfecting gel, etc. You get the idea.
Information about COVID-19 can be found at www.who.int or at www.cdc.gov.
