Recycle Your Old Bikes

Recycle your old bikes that would otherwise be rusting away – donate them to a good cause and check out our new and recycled bikes that are for sale.

Old or unused bicycles we will always accept them whatever condition as donations and this will help to add to our inventory of spares parts. In some inances where the bicycle is in reasonable condition, we will use them for training repair bikes or repair them and ask for a small donation for those who need a bicycle for getting around town or to work.

Do you have an old bike that is in need of repair? Or do you want to buy a bike but are put off by the cost? Find out all you need to know about our bike reuse and repair scheme.

Cycle back to work scheme is launched Pedal power could help people get back into work with a new pilot project started by West Lancashire Borough Council.

People living in Skelmersdale and Up Holland who can’t reasonably reach Pimbo Industrial Estate by public transport and don’t have access to a car may be eligible for the Council’s Cycle to Work scheme. This would provide them with a re-conditioned bike and new safety equipment so they can pedal their way to their job.

The aim is to help people get back into work by providing them with a way to access employment sites on Pimbo. Other authorities who have set up cycle to work schemes say they have helped a number of people into employment.

To qualify people must be referred to this service by Job Centre Plus or a private employment/recruitment firm as someone to whom transport has presented an obstacle to entering work. They must work, or have accepted work, on the Pimbo Industrial Estate, and earn a gross income of less than £17,500 a year.

People who are no longer eligible for the Demand Responsive Transport Service (DRTS) may qualify for the Cycle to Work scheme. The cost of the Cycle to Work pilot scheme will be funded from developer contributions.
