We collect all adults’ and kids’ bikes in whatever condition they are. We also collect e-bikes, scooters, e-scooters, Segway’s and other personal transport vehicles (PTVs) that don’t even have names!
Once you register on the website, we will be in contact within a week to organise collection. We currently have turnaround of two (2) weeks or so and request a donation of $5 to cover the cost.
Nothing will be wasted. Depending on the condition of the ride, we might repair and redeploy your bike, or we might keep parts, or we might disassemble your bike and recycle the steel, aluminium, plastic or rubber and keep it out of landfill. Or, high-quality kids’ bikes go to kids who need them for free. Basically, we follow a waste minimisation hierarchy of repair, redeploy, reuse and recycle.

With free bikes, we support charities that provide bikes to kids who need them for school and fun so that they can participate and contribute to their communities. That includes refugee kids, such as the kids from Ukraine that we’ve recently given free rides to, as well as a youth mentoring program in Redfern and to remote Indigenous communities in the NT. Recently, the Revolve ReCYCLING Foundation, which is tax deductible, has been formed to extend and expand this work, including the goal of 1000 bikes for 1000 kids in 2024.
We engage with community and bike groups who promote cycling as part of mobility plans and creating sustainable and environmentally conscious communities.
We provide employment and training in bike collection, repair and disassembly to people with disabilities or who are disadvantaged in getting a job because they are refugees or “too old”. We call ourselves a “profit-for-purpose” organisation.
We partner to assist them with the management of their bikes when they reach end-of-life so that nothing goes to landfill. We might also service their fleet so that they stay longer on the road.
We partner with bike shop owners to assist them with their waste minimisation and end-of-life bikes so that nothing goes to landfill. We also sell replacement parts to our bike industry mates. As part of this, we are currently running the Green Wheels program as funded by the NSW EPA.
We partner with councils to assist them with diverting bikes from going to landfill and illegal dumping by organising special education and collection events. So far, we’ve worked with over 10 councils in the Sydney metro areas, including drop-off events and bike maintenance days.
