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, Ipswich, Cowes and Croydon, as well as 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 (not Re~Cycle) bike re-use projects listed will gladly accept bikes for their own use / benefit of local community.
Please click on the project name for further information (and let us know of any new projects/updates/mistakes – thanks).
PLEASE see the types of bikes we want, and don't want in “What kind of bikes?” (to the right on computer/below on mobile), part of our FAQ.
NOTE - we are unable to pick up bikes, sorry
