    Donating a bike is easy, Simply bring your donations into our Kessingland shop during our opening hours. You don't need to make an appointment and we will give you a £5 CycleRecycle voucher for each complete bike you donate.
  • Do you send my donation to the third world?
    Whilst we agree wholeheartedly with the concept of sending unwanted bicycles to the third world, there are many charity's that do this already. Our concern is that when a bicycle breaks down in the third world, there is invariably less likelihood of it being fixed, or indeed recycled. We are determined to keep bikes and parts out of landfill, here in the UK and globally. Sending bikes overseas can mean that bikes end up into foreign landfill, and the carbon footprint that comes from shipping bikes mean this is something that CycleRecycle wouldn't want to contribute too.
  • Why should I recycle my bike?
    We promote keeping bicycles out of landfill. Bicycles by their nature are very difficult to recycle as they have different grades and types of metal used in their construction. They also have rubber tyres and inner tubes. the contact points can be made from various different types of plastics. The whole thing is a headache for the recycling centres so they tend to throw them into general waste (or land fill as it is better known). We take the bike and strip it down. We are yet to come across the bike that doesn't have some salvageable parts. We clean and service the parts and restore them to their former condition. More importantly, your donation will make a positive change in someones life. It could help someone find and keep a job, help a child get to school or help someone get fitter and healthier.
