Surrey School Board Bikes!

This is becoming an annual thing, the good folks from the SURREY SCHOOLS came by to pick up close to 100 FULLY TUNED KIDS BIKES today!

Vancouver Bicycle Recycling

These bikes will be dispersed across several schools throughout the SURREY SCHOOL BOARD DISTRICT and into the hands of kids that need them most!

While these bikes are READY TO ROLL, some of them will end up in workshops within the schools for kids to learn some of the basics on bike maintenance. Practical skills that should set them up for a lifetime love of cycling with any luck!

BICYCLES FOR HUMANITY came by, AGAIN!

We had the good folks from BICYCLES FOR HUMANITY come by recently to collect a trailer load of bikes that will eventually end up being shipped to Africa in a storage container.

The container stays there and gets converted into a work station and the bikes make their way to those in the area that need them most!

Normally we supply at least 200 bikes a year to this program!

About Us

Vancouver Bicycle Recycling has been established to initiate a means of returning unwanted or abandoned bicycles back into the community.

Hundreds of bicycles Arrive at the Vancouver area Landfills on a daily basis. These are bicycles that could and should be repaired and made available to many a rider in need.

We are not a charity, nor do we pretend to be. We have costs associated with running the program like any business would.  The bikes that get donated normally end up in 3 groups:

REPAIRABLE, if the bike can be fixed up to get back on the road, we will give it a full   tune up, by professional bike mechanics, using either new or used parts. These are then sold in our store as very reasonably priced up-cycled used bikes.

UNREPAIRABLE, if the bike is beyond repair, we ensure that it gets stripped down as efficiently as possible, usable parts are kept to mend other bikes, the remaining parts are separated into Steel, Aluminum, Rubber, Hard Plastic to be properly recycled.

GIVEN AWAY. We work with a number of local charities and organisations to get the bikes into the hands of the people that need them most.

Check our TESTIMONIALS page for thank you letters from happy recipients.

Most kids bikes are fixed up and given away for FREE as we’re strong believers that every kid should have access to a bike.

If you are a charity or organisation that would be interested in benefiting from our service, we are always glad to try and help any way we can, just give us a call on 604-736-7433

If you have a bicycle to donate to us, you can refer to our PICK UP’s page for how to contact us, or you can always drop it off in person to 2255 West Broadway (block and 1/2 West of Arbutus)  between 10-7 daily.
