Your donated bike
There are 4 ways your old bicycle may be used:
- If it is in good enough condition your old bike will be fully stripped down cleaned, completely overhauled and sold back into the community as a low cost alternative to a new bike. (we are a “not-for-profit” social enterprise, but have to generate enough money to keep the project running).
- If it is not in good enough condition to be refurbished and sold, it will be stripped for useable parts and the rest recycled as best as possible. the second hand parts will be used to help refurbish other bikes or to help keep bills down on repair work (great if you or your kids have a habit of breaking your bike(s) or you don’t have much money and need to keep that trusty workhorse on the road)
- If your bike falls somewhere between these first 2 options it might be sent to similar projects in Africa, through the Re-Cycle Bicycle Aid for Africa project based in Colchester. This is a really cool project that can really change peoples lives, check out their website.
- We also provide bikes to the COMAC asylum seeker and refugee project who work in conjuction with ASSIST to provide recycled biycles for asylum seekers and refugees based in Sheffield.
Get in touch
Please bear in mind that it is not economic for us to collect bikes from the public, instead we rely on people dropping them off at one of our collection points listed above. If you have any questions please phone the workshop on 0114 250 7717 or email us on firstname.lastname@example.org
