Bike Recycling

Bicycle Recycling

Recyclistas is proud to contribute to the circular economy in Victoria. One of the ways we do this is by offering a bicycle recycling service for the community. 

We accept bicycles and bicycle-related items in any condition, and then do our best to give them a new life. 

Just drop your bike off anytime during our open hours – there is no need to make an appointment. Unfortunately, we are not able to do pick-ups at this time.  

Please be aware that we do not buy, trade or consign bicycles, parts or accessories.

Bicycles that are donated to Recyclistas are used in a variety of ways:

Refurbished by Recyclistas and sold for a new life with a new rider

Distributed to other community groups like Spokes, which connects university students to affordable bikes, or Bikes for Humanity, which sends bikes to Africa

Used in local high schools to help students learn bike mechanics

Fixed up by our partners and distributed to youth and kids who wouldn’t normally be able to afford a bike

Any bike that isn’t fixable is stripped of all its usable parts that can be used to repair other bikes. The leftover metal is then recycled.
