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. We rely on these donations to keep all of our programs running.

If you are able to bring your donation to our shop, please bring it by during any of our public program hours, currently:

  • Saturday 11am – 2pm
  • Monday 12pm – 3pm and 5:30pm – 7:30pm
  • Tuesday 5pm – 7pm
  • Wednesday 6pm – 8pm
  • Thursday 10am – 1pm and 7pm – 9pm

Email [email protected] to schedule a pick-up.
