The Recyclery needs your used bicycles, bike parts, and tools! 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.

Email donatebikes@therecyclery.org to schedule a pick-up today. You can also drop off bikes directly to the Collection Points listed below. Consider hosting a bike drive to collect bikes for us. We take bicycles in all conditions.

If you are able to bring your donation to our shop, please schedule a “Donation Drop Off” appointment HERE.

If you donate at a drop-off location where donation letters are unavailable, you may email us to receive a letter for tax purposes.
