How to recycle

Bicycles or Bike Parts

In recycling

Clean metal bike parts 3-inches or larger can go in the recycling:

  • Items must fit in your bin with the lid closed.
  • Don’t exceed the weight limits printed on your bin.

Drop-off locations

Donate or resell usable bikes and parts to scrap metal dealers or community-oriented bike shops like Bike Works or Recycled Cycles.

Bring bikes and parts to city transfer stations to be recycled. No fee.

In garbage

Bike parts smaller than 3-inches go in the garbage.

Decrease waste: Choose reusable items or donate to thrift stores.
