In the last 3 years, Fatimá and Mihály have saved, fixed and gave Torontonians “700” bicycles from donors like you! and… Mihály’s ‘Earn-a-Bike’ program is fully adopted and implemented by 4 community-based organizations; 2 in Toronto, 1 group in Dublin, Ireland, and 1 in Wellington, New Zealand.
Bicycle Recycling in Toronto
We recycle used bikes, repair used bicycles, refurbish donated bicycles and upcycle new rides out of run-down bikes!! We’re a volunteer-run (not-for-profit) sustainable bicycle recycling program based in Toronto that supports the community, helps the environment and the livelihood of individuals with inexpensive refurbished bicycles—we take used bicycles either donated to us or we’ll rummage through thrift stores, garages, or find them abandoned in rivers, or leaning against the weekly trash and we build new ones, using about 70 per cent recycled parts. Sales of our bikes cover the cost of new bike parts, equipment and tools needed to fix other bicycles. We gladly accept donations of bicycles, bike parts in good condition, bells and locks for our recycled bicycles.
