If you have an old bike in good condition, we would love to give it a new lease of life. Donated bikes provide hours of training for our trainee mechanics. The finished bikes are sold at affordable prices in our Siopa Rothar or donated to those in need, such as refugees.
If you wish to donate your bike as part of our ‘Recycle your Cycle’ initiative, please email pictures of your bike recycle.your.cycle.amr (at) gmail (dot) com.
This is just so we can see the condition of the bike prior to donation, as any unsalvageable bikes will need to be cut down into its compotent parts for metal recycling, stored until we can recycle it and transported to the recycling centre All of this costs us.. If you do donate a bike that cannot be repaired, you will be charged €10 to cover the cost of recycling the metal.
Bikes can then be dropped off at our workshop in Westside at Unit 7-8 (next to the Bean Tree) Westside Enterprise Park, Bothar na Cheile H91 YW53 – call us to arrange a time.
Call us on 091-725-874 if you have any queries.
If your old bike has any issues like the below, which affect the structural integrity of the bike, it might not be saveable. You can email photos in advance & our mechanics will be happy to advise.
