This is a community specifically designed for residents of specific cities who want to share items they no longer need with others who could benefit from them. It’s a platform for giving and receiving. This group was inspired by the efforts of freecycle.org and the freecycle ideology.
This group is open to everyone, irrespective of their financial status. Whether you’re well-off but willing to embrace pre-owned items, we appreciate your choice and express gratitude for your willingness to accept and utilize these products from fellow members.
1. Only posts for free offers and requests are permitted.
2. Please refrain from offering payments when making a request.
3. Avoid requesting money when sharing items you want to give away.
4. Do not solicit donations within the community.
5. Please refrain from posting festival greetings.
6. Do not engage in any form of self-promotion, including advertising personal products, services, other Facebook groups or other organisations.
7. Discussions and opinions are not permitted except for posts Note from the Admin.
8. If you have any questions, need to report issues, or wish to express concerns, please contact the admin.
9. All Posts are held for approval. People who follow the guidelines get pre-approved.
When offering an item, enhance your post with a photo or video of the item you’re giving away.
Be transparent about the condition of the item. If it needs repairs or is broken, please mention it so potential recipients can make an informed decision about whether they want to invest time, effort, or money in collecting it.
Specify the pickup location by mentioning landmarks, areas, suburbs, or neighbourhoods. Keep in mind that it’s unlikely someone will travel a significant distance to collect the item.
If you have an item at home that you’re willing to give away, simply inform the interested person where they can pick it up.
We recommend giving priority to the person who is ready to collect the item first. Just because someone expressed interest doesn’t guarantee they’ll collect it immediately.
If you find that there is no interest in something you intended to give away, it’s likely that nobody actually wants it. In such cases, consider offering it to someone in need, like a charitable organization. If you believe that people might have overlooked your post and would appreciate a repost within the group, kindly wait for a week before doing so.
Once a person collects the item you posted to give away, please edit your post and mention it has been taken by ____ (name of the person) and turn off comments to ensure people don’t keep asking if it is still available.
If you are making a request for something, mention the area you are willing to travel or book a WEFAST to have it picked up.
If you’ve received an item from someone in less than ideal condition, it’s important to remember that the giver likely didn’t intend to provide you with something subpar. While you have the option to communicate your concerns to the giver, it might be a more practical approach to consider giving the item to a scrap dealer and moving on, even if you’ve invested some money in getting it picked up from the giver.
Avoid requesting the sender to arrange courier services. If you’re interested in an item, take the initiative to use a service like WEFAST (Now known as Borzo Delivery) or Porter to arrange pickup from the giver.
Don’t expect others to go out of their way to source or deliver items to you.
If you’ve requested an item and received no response, it may be because no one in the group currently has what you’re looking for or is willing to part with it. Don’t be disheartened; you can repost your request after a week. New members join the group regularly, so stay positive, and avoid daily reposts. Remember, patience and respect for others in the group go a long way. Take it easy and try again when the time is right.
If someone has posted a request and someone else has generously offered to fulfill it in the comments, please refrain from asking the person to give it to you instead. Consider creating your own separate request post to avoid any misunderstandings or conflicts.
Kindly refrain from pressuring individuals who are generously offering items for free for additional items. If the giver reports any instances of such behavior by providing us with screenshots of such messages, it will result in your removal from the group.
We do not recommend giving or receiving items from people outside the purview of WEFAST or PORTER. Watch the video to understand why.
Please watch this video for your own safety. We will not be responsible if you do not follow our recommendations below. Be strict and vigilant about the information provided.
Engaging in any form of public shaming within the group will result in a ban.
We maintain a strict zero-tolerance policy against individuals who use the group as a platform to shame, pass judgment, or be offensive to others publicly.
If you have reservations or critical thoughts, kindly refrain from expressing them in the comments and keep them to yourself.
Avoid making sarcastic remarks in response to any member’s posts or comments.
Liking such sarcastic remarks will also lead to a ban.
Please abstain from passing judgment in the comments section, and instead, if you have concerns or suggestions regarding the group’s management, reach out directly to the Admin.
Should you encounter any issues with someone, be it trouble, harassment, or disturbance via private or direct messages, kindly share screenshots with the Admin so that he can address the matter appropriately.
If you notice anyone not following the group guidelines, please consider sharing the guidelines with them by providing the link.
