Donate a Bike


The Recyclery can use your used bicycles, bike parts, and tools. You can deliver bikes to the Drop-off Locations listed below. We take bicycles in all conditions. A donated bicycle will be given away to people who need them through our Freecyclery program, used in our youth classes, or repaired by a mechanic and sold for an affordable price at one of our sales. We rely on these donations to keep all of our programs running. Consider hosting a bike drive to collect bikes for us.
