The Salvage Story

Beside getting more folks on bikes another basic goal of the Bicycle Library is to divert metal from the landfill by salvaging parts for reuse from bikes that are themselves beyond reuse and recycling the left over scarp metal.

This load, taken today, on the Bike Library’s 8 foot trailer put us over 1000 pounds of metal recycled this year by this mode of transportation since our first run with the trailer in early March. Overall, with the help of City dump trucks last week, we have recycled 2730 pounds of metal.
