How and where to donate a bike
We gladly accept donations of unwanted bicycles, bike parts and tools at our Colchester warehouse and Re~Cycle drop off points in Chelmsford and Ipswich.
Bikes, parts and tools are gratefully received on our behalf at the 5 branches of Action Bikes in London.
Bikes ONLY can be dropped off at 77 (not all) branches of Halfords across the country.
Please note: if you would like to ensure your old bike comes to us to support our partners in Africa please take it to an official Re~Cycle drop-off location as indicated by the bike icon - and we'll make sure your unwanted bike helps transform a life.
If you cannot get to one of our drop off points, the other Bike Reuse Projects listed below will gladly accept bikes for their own use for the benefit of their local community – much better than taking a bike to the dump.
Please click on the project name for further information (and let us know of any new projects/updates/mistakes – thanks) .
