EBC engages community groups, businesses, schools, not-for-profit organization, government departments and institutions with bicycle-related information and services. Our outreach efforts rely on our strong community connections and are often done by our committed volunteers or staff.
Collecting Bicycle Donations
Our community bike shop, BikeWorks, accepts donations of bicycles, bike parts and bike accessories. Donations should be in good condition (old bikes are fine). Very poor condition bicycles should be taken to the City of Edmonton Eco Station or a scrap metal recycler. All bikes donated to EBC are refurbished, reused, or recycled.
Your organization could hold a bicycle collection day where participants bring their unused bicycles to your location. Collected bicycles and parts would be gladly accepted at BikeWorks. Pick up services are not available; however, we may be able to use one of our bike cargo trailers to haul donations back to BikeWorks.
