Donate Your Old Bike
Go Pedal Power - Donates bikes to underprivileged children in Chicago. In order to receive a bike, the child must have good grades.
Working Bikes Cooperative - Recovers landfill-bound bicycles, repairs them to working condition, and sells them to Chicagoans at a low cost in order to fund shipments of bicycles and bike parts to developing countries.
Recycling Tires and Inner Tubes - Riding a bike is more eco-friendly than driving a car, but what do you do after those tires and tubes wear out? They are not biodegradable and shouldn’t end up in a landfill. Consider recycling or upcycling. Recycling turns stuff into the same thing over and over again. Upcycling turns something of lesser value into something of greater value. Please check with local bicycle shops, sporting goods stores, and automobile tire stores to see if they will accept your used tires or inner tubes.
