Storage Policy

Supporter Level Storage:
Decatur Makers currently provides storage bins for Supporter Level members, where they may keep project materials and partially completed works.
DRYING PROJECTS:
  • Projects that are painted or glued and need a short period to dry are allowed on the Drying Racks but must be marked with a filled out DTMP sheet including name, date, and contact info.
  • Drying projects that do not fit on the drying shelves require you to contact the Staff or Area Steward for approval before leaving your project.
  • The Drying Racks consist of shelves located on the back wall of the Space.
  • Drying Projects may be stored for a limited time in the Drying Racks. 72 hours maximum. Each item placed on the Drying Racks by a member MUST be labeled with a DTMP flyer with the member’s name, contact info, and the date. Unlabeled items will be handled the same as Expired Projects described below.
  • Drying Projects may be stored on the Drying Racks for no longer than 3 days.
  • If you need more time than that to finish your project, then email [email protected] BEFORE leaving your project to request a longer storage time.
  • If the project is left longer than 3 days it will be considered "expired."
LARGE PROJECT-IN-PROCESS PROJECTS:
  • If you have a large project in mind that will require leaving it at the space for a period of time, you must request approval from Staff or Area Stewards before starting or email [email protected].
  • Approved Project-in-Process projects must be:
    • properly marked with a DTMP sheet including name, contact info, and date
    • Must be stored within the designated area.
  • If the project is left longer than the agreed upon time, an email will be sent to the project owner. If the owner does not respond, then see Expired Project below.
EXPIRED PROJECTS:
  • Unlabeled projects or projects stored for longer than the agreed upon time will be “quarantined” by attaching a red sticker.
  • Projects are consider expired based on their initial start date.
  • Picture(s) of the quarantined items will be posted to the #expired-projects channel on Slack.
    • The owner will be responsible for:
      • Recognizing that the projects has been quarantined, and
      • Removing the project within 5 days.
  • Quarantined projects that are not removed within 5 days will be discarded and any usable project materials will be made available for general use.
  • If a project owner is non-responsive on Slack, we will send an email to the primary contact address on their account containing the same information.
