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, the children displacement issue is addressed. In late 2012 Project ReCycle 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 a second program. The original Bikes for Tykes event became a year round program that identifies children living in foster homes or displaced homes. Project ReCycle works with multiple agencies to provide stability for children. The gifted bicycle becomes a constant in a life of change. In order to fulfill the bike requests from the Dream Bike and Bikes for Tykes programs, the Recycle your Bicycle program was created. Project ReCycle collects bicycles from participating locations on a weekly basis. Bikes are brought back to the repair shop and inspected. If a bike cannot be fixed for reuse, it is dismantled. Each part is inspected from the dismantled bikes for future use. Project ReCycle makes every attempt to use every working part from the dismantled bikes and all remaining parts are then recycled
