Appeal for the donation of used bicycles from Get reCycling appell

Yorwaste’s Get reCycling campaign is in its third year and will run throughout August. It enables the public in York and North Yorkshire to take used bikes to dedicated drop-off points at the company’s 22 Household Waste Recycling Centers (HWRCs).

The HWRCs accept children’s and adult bikes in any condition, which are then repaired or used as spares and redistributed by the campaign’s charity partners.

A selection of well-maintained bikes will be donated to the Brownlee Foundation, set up by Olympic triathlete brothers Alistair and Jonny Brownlee, to be given to schools for students to borrow – whether for commuting to and from school or to pleasure in their free time.

This is part of the Foundation’s commitment to inspire and give more children access to sport and physical activity.

Jonny Brownlee said: “It’s great to be working with Yorwaste and supporting the ‘Get reCycling’ campaign to get unused bikes back in working order. Reusing things and making them last longer is more sustainable and better for the environment.

“If these are children’s bikes, it also helps children and young people lead an active lifestyle and benefit from the opportunities offered by sport.”

York Sport, part of the University of York which provides facilities in the community to encourage everyone to lead a fun, active lifestyle, will also receive a selection of quality bikes to provide cycling lessons to young people who may not own a bike.

York-based not-for-profit company The Recycle Project CIC said it is committed to turning “waste” into opportunity. As such, bikes that require a little more maintenance are repaired and sold at reasonable prices to raise important funds for community projects.

James Todd, Commercial Business Partner at Yorwaste, said: “We are delighted to partner with the Brownlee Foundation and York Sport to give young people the opportunity to be active and socialize through sport.”

“We’re always looking for ways to evolve our Get reCycling campaign each year while emphasizing the importance of reusing items and the role it plays in a more sustainable economy.”

Yorwaste operates the 22 household waste recycling plants on behalf of North Yorkshire Council and the City of York Council. The locations of the sites can be found on the North Yorkshire Council website.

Councilor Jenny Kent, Executive Member for Environment and Climate Emergencies at York City Council, said: “Each year, our Get reCycling campaign brings life-changing benefits to many young people and families, and it’s all thanks to the generous support of the local public.” .” Appeal for the donation of used bicycles from Get reCycling appell
