- Team Project ReCycle
PROJECT RECYCLE is a Colorado, Douglas county based 501(c)3 Non-Profit.
Project ReCycle’s original intent was to provide smiles to children all over the state by donating a bicycle. That has not changed. Our first run at this venture led us to create a program that would not only guarantee smiles but would also influence children’s academic behavior in a positive manner. As part of our Dream Bike Program, Children, during their academic year, are encouraged to earn a bike by improving in 3 areas; Respect, Attendance and Academic Growth. Likewise, we wanted to address the children displacement issue. In late 2012 we merged with a local Castle Rock non-profit. They ran a very successful Christmas event called Bikes for Tykes Colorado. That event was the inspiration for our second program. The original Bikes for Tykes event became a year round program that identifies children living in foster homes or displaced homes. We work with multiple agencies to provide stability for children. The bicycle we gift becomes a constant in a life of change. In order to fulfill the bike requests from our Dream Bike and Bikes for Tykes programs, our Recycle your Bicycle program was created. We collect bicycles from our participating locations on a weekly basis. Bikes are brought back to our repair shop and inspected. If a bike cannot be fixed for reuse, we dismantle it. We inspect each part from the dismantle bike for future use. We try to use every working part from dismantle bikes. The remaining parts are recycled.
