A business in Malvern has taken it upon themselves to get people to donate bikes which would normally had gone to the local council tip. ‘Bicycles’ in Worcester Road is a community interest company. They specialise in recycling bikes which are gathering dust at the back of garden sheds or left in the garden, or thrown away. They have now teamed up with SITR (Specialist Independent Tyre Recycler)
who intend to send regular consignments of bikes to Africa. It’s hope that these donations of bikes will make a real difference to their lives.
Tanya Trotman, their spokesperson, explained that millions of bikes are disposed off or are left unused and unwanted at the back of sheds whereas in Africa many people have no transport at all. They often spend hours every day walking to collect the basics of life such as water, food and firewood. Also getting to work or to health centres is another issue. These donated bicycles will help to transform their lives and improve their lifestyle.
The idea behind this scheme came about when Mrs Trotman visited SITR and learned it takes regular loads of tyres to Africa. She went on to say that ‘as a business we have always wanted to do something like this, so seemed the perfect opportunity’.
At the end of the month the 1st consignment of bikes rescued from people’s sheds and the local council tip will be heading to Ghana. It’s also hoped that every month they will be able to take 30 or more bikes. Mrs Trotman feels this is a reasonable target given the number of bikes thrown away every month.
If you are interested in donating a bike you can drop it into their store or you could call (07866) 677720 or (01684) 577328 to discuss other ways of getting your old rejected bikes to them.
So take a look in your 8X5 shed, is there a bike waiting to be utilised better and help to transform somebody’s life. Also might be an idea to tidy those buildings and recycle other items as well.
