Freecycle Malaysia seem to be working

Although a lot of messages sent to the Freecycle Malaysia Yahoo group are spam (but which does not get through because new members' messages are moderated), and the group is a national group and not a local group the group seem to be working to some extend. Recently, there were a few OFFERS which found home near to its origin, and some OFFERS which were sent via the mail. It is the hope that eventually the group grows big enough and there are enough members who get familiar with the rules and enough local members have met to form local groups.

The rules are simple:

  • things to be offered should be free, legal and appropriate for all ages

  • messages title should start with the words OFFER, WANTED or TAKEN depending on the nature of the messages, followed by short description of the items and preferably, its locality

  • members participate in the program at their own risk
