What happened to Groups?

You may have noticed that Freecycle Groups are now called Towns. To help you make the transition, we'll refer to them as local Town groups or Town groups for a while. 

They are the same groups you know and love. They cover the same area and have the same dedicated local moderators.

Hopefully, you have also noticed that we have a new type of group called Friends Circle. Now that we have two types of Freecycle groups, we wanted to give them names that would differentiate them.

  • The type that everyone is familiar with is based on where you live, which is why we call these Town groups
  • Friends Circles are independent of geography and can be any group of friends or relatives that you choose, regardless of where they live (that said, it would be practical for your Friends to live close enough for you to easily give and receive items)
