New Life for Old Rides
Revolve ReCYCLING recovers, recycles and redeploys bikes, e-bikes, scooters and other Personal Transport Vehicles (PTVs) in Sydney, Australia.
Revolve ReCYCLING wants to be Australia’s primary platform to help riders, bike shops and other retailers, PTV fleet operators, importers and others give new life to old rides.
Australians are buying and using two million plus PTVs every year – and that’s growing as part of the mobility revolution. It’s awesome – and we want to make sure that there’s a ‘sustainability solution’ for those PTVs when they reach the end of their ‘first life’.
Revolve ReCYCLING’s mechanics repair and redeploy the good quality bikes which we sell at affordable prices. Kids’ bikes are donated to kids who need them. All other material is diverted from landfill to recycling.
Our office number is 0400 217 105. We’re open for donation drop-offs and bike sales from Monday to Wednesday 10am to 5pm, and Saturdays from 10am to 2pm at our WheelShop at 84 Burrows Road in Alexandria.
During September and October, there’s free coffee vouchers for The Grounds of Alexandria when you do a donation drop-off at our WheelShop.
PTVs are made from materials and components such as steel, aluminium, titanium, carbon, plastics, rubber and battery materials which are too often wasted by being buried in big holes in the ground when ‘round one’ is done.
By recycling those materials, or redeploying PTVs for another life, riders avoid waste to landfill, conserve natural resources and minimise greenhouse emissions.
In doing so, Revolve ReCYCLING also wants to provide employment opportunities for people from disadvantaged or disabled backgrounds. For us, it’s part of being part of a more sustainable and kinder community.
