The Recyclery is where pre-loved bikes go to get a second chance at life. Got a bike in reasonable condition that is no longer ridden? Drop it in to the Centre and we will nurture it back to good health and pass it along to someone who needs it.
Need some wheels to get around town but don't want to spend a fortune? Come and check out our range of second-hand bikes, tuned by a professional bike mechanic and ready to roll out the door from as little as $80. You can rest assured in knowing that the money you're spending or the bike you're donating is helping to divert waste from landfill and assisting the Environment Centre in continuing their community education projects.
The Recyclery has become an institution for Canberra cycle lovers and was managed lovingly by LEAD employment for a number of years before entering a new phase in life under the direction of the Canberra Environment Centre.
Our good friends Cycle Jam utilise the space from 4pm-7pm every Wednesday and will show you how to fix your own bike for no charge at all!
Please note that the Recyclery cannot repair your bike for you. We encourage you to attend Cycle Jam and learn to fix it yourself.
Recyclery opening hours: 9am – 4pm Monday to Thursday.
BUYING YOUR BIKE
