Recycling

BETTER HEALTH BIKES is also a recycling project.  

Have you an old bicycle that you no longer use? Is your communal parking area full of dusty bikes from previous residents taking up valuable parking space? Please bring them to THE BIKERY at 13 Stean Street E8 4ED. We happily to accept unwanted bikes for donation and give them new life!

Donated bikes will either be:

Stripped completely – good components are reused and non-usable parts are recycled as scrap metal

Recycled – The bicycle is stripped to the frame by one of our volunteers and all worn consumable parts are replaced.  Once refitted and in full working order the bike will be available for purchase.

Upcycled – Similarly to a recycled bike, it will be upgraded with modern parts, such as aluminium rims, sealed bottom bracket or caliper brakes. Upcycled bikes will also be available for purchase in the shop.
