CleanScapes and Bike Works Launch Bicycle Recycling Program

Starting in June 2011, CleanScapes began testing a new collection system for bicycles at Seattle’s North and South transfer stations. Special CleanScapes “RE-CYCLING” dumpsters, painted bright green and decorated with bicycle decals, provide Seattleites with a new option for recycling their unwanted bicycles and bike parts instead of throwing them away.

Bike Recycling and Waste Reduction Rewards Programs Honored

SEATTLE, WA – (August 24, 2011) –This week the Solid Waste Association of North America awarded CleanScapes both a Silver and Bronze Excellence Award at their National Conference in Nashville Tennessee.  The silver award was granted in recognition of CleanScapes bike recycling program and the bronze award was for CleanScapes Neighborhood Reduction Rewards programs. 

CleanScapes launched their bicycle recycling program in June of 2010 – placing the first collection station at Seattle’s North Transfer Station.  Since the inception of the program, collection stations have expanded to Seattle’s South Transfer Station and King County’s Shoreline Transfer Station, and CleanScapes and their partner Bike Works have recycled over 2,000 bikes.

King County Joins the CleanScapes/Bike Works Partnership

Check out this awsome news about our growing bike recycling program...


Last year, CleanScapes started a partnership with Bike Works to save unwanted bikes from the dump. The garbage collection company instead began donating bikes they recovered from Seattle’s North and South Transfer Stations to Bike Works.

Now, King County has announced that it is joining the cause by collecting unwanted bikes and parts at the Shoreline Transfer Station and donating them to Bike Works, too.

Bike Works is such a magical organization. It even has the power to turn trash into freedom! (though, of course, it needs the help of volunteers like you to make it all happen).
