Donation expiry dates


    I had an idea around some of the smaller donations that end up in the hack room. We should put expiry dates on them. Right now we put a “Hackable” label on things but we should also consider a discard by date. A month should do for most things. A year if it has real potential. Printers should be a month. If nobody has taken it apart in that time we can just discard them. An RC car maybe 3 months. That bike hub can be a year. Thoughts?

  • I called it a hack date. I came up with it a year and a half ago. Not just small donations, donations that take up room that we really don’t need or is easy to get. Why a hack date. To let people know it is a hackable then we get ride of it.
