Sports Recycler Ltd is a not for profit social enterprise founded in 2005 to promote a healthier lifestyle, encourage recycling, provide services for the benefit of the community and offer training and work experience for people who are disadvantaged in the mainstream job market. The Company takes donations of unwanted cycles and refurbishes them for low cost sale and re-use in the community; bikes are also made available to long-term unemployed people newly back to work through job support agencies. Sports Recycler sells a full range of recycled bike parts and offers a bike repair service for the public; it has a transit van and 14 seater mini bus, and bike trailers, for charged use, offers bike ride transfer packages, is a provider for Cyclescheme UK supplying new cycles and has a range of electric cycles which enable a longer active cycling life for enthusiasts. The office and workshops are based at Business Works in South Shields; the recycling workshop is open on Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays from 10.30-4.00 [closed on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Sundays] and the repairs workshop is open to the public on Saturdays also during those hours. Saturday is also the day to visit the Electric Bike Showroom for advice and test rides. Sports Recycler receives no funding and all income earned goes into keeping the business going to provide services for the community. The Company was founded and is managed and run by unwaged workers. When you use our services you contribute towards keeping the business going so that we can continue to offer those services.
