* When you submit a WANTED post, and you receive the item, you submit a RECEIVED message.

Message example:

Subject line: OFFER: Moving boxes - San Rafael
Message body: Lots of moving boxes in various sizes. Flattened and ready for pickup. These are used moving boxes that I received from another freecycler so their condition reflects that.

Please remember: Always include honest information in the message body about the condition of your item; if the item is not worthy of being freecycled for its intended purpose, but should really be tossed out, you should not be freecycling it. However -- someone may still want it! Examples: a tinkerer or artist may be interested in your item no matter its condition, so they can use it for their own purposes of deconstruction or inclusion in a recycled art project.
