Donate your old bike – help someone in need

Summary

Brimbank Council has teamed up with Inner West Community Bike Hub to launch Give a Bike - a bicycle donation program to make sure unwanted or abandoned bikes find their way back into the community.

Through Give a Bike community members are invited to donate their unwanted bikes to be cleaned and repaired and given to community members in need.

Brimbank Mayor, Cr Georgina Papafotiou encouraged community members to support the program.

‘Council is really happy to partner with Inner West Community Bike Hub to deliver this fantastic new program.

‘Give a Bike essentially gives community members the opportunity to pass on their unwanted bikes to community members who otherwise may not have the means to purchase one.

‘If you have a bike that you no longer need or want – or perhaps your child has outgrown theirs - simply drop if off at the Brimbank Resource Recovery Centre in Keilor Park during opening hours and we’ll do the rest.

‘Donated bikes will be passed on to Inner West Community Bike Hub to be cleaned and repaired before being distributed back into the community,’ Cr Papafotiou said.

Donated bikes need to be in good condition or easily repaired. Bikes with broken frames or that are beyond repair cannot be accepted.

The Brimbank Resource Recovery Centre is located on Stadium Drive, Keilor Park and is open Monday to Friday 9am-4pm (excluding public holidays) and Saturdays 9am-1pm.
