Cycle Recycle Bike Donation

Project Outline 

The Cycle Recycle Scheme, established in partnership with Lancashire County Council, initially formed part of Active Lancashire’s wellbeing offer under the More Positive Together Project, but has recently expanded into being a free-standing scheme supported by Lancashire Constabulary, Lancashire County Council and Connecting East Lancashire. 

Cycle Recycle launched in July 2018 and aims to provide residents in some of the most deprived areas of Lancashire with a recycled bike to help encourage them to become active, but also to provide wider benefits such as making them more mobile with the means to access employment opportunities.

The Benefits of the project
The project carries a number of benefits not only for participants themselves, but also for the wider community and the environment. Benefits of the project include:

  • Access to free transport
  • Healthier lifestyle encouraged through use of the bike
  • Save tax payers money through creating job prospects
  • Business opportunities as multiple partners involved
  • Recycling aluminium saves 95% energy
  • Recycling plastic saves 70% energy
  • Helps towards better environment across Lancashire

How you can help?

Have you got an old bike that you no longer use? You can donate it to Active Lancashire!

Active Lancashire are collecting bikes for the Cycle Recycle project. The bikes collected contribute to supporting individuals to learn new skills in renovating the bike back to fully functional standard. Participants will keep the bike to increase their chances of employability and lead more physically and economically active lives.

There are five sites across Lancashire where you can drop the bike off, please see the details below:
