Re-Cycle relies heavily on support from volunteers and we are very grateful for their time, hard work, and dedication.

All our volunteers make an invaluable contribution to the work and success of Re-Cycle and we do our best to ensure that volunteer time here is rewarding and enjoyable.

Warehouse Support

Workshop Support
Bike mechanic; repairing and refurbishing used donated bikes that are unsuitable for shipment to Africa to be sold to the UK public.
Bike Collector

This role involves driving our own transit van or a hire vehicle to collect bikes from various locations in the UK. This role also involves loading and unloading bikes.

There are additional ways in which you can help:

Research and office support – this support is varied and may be ad hoc and infrequent or could be more regular. It might be office based or remote i.e. working from home.

Trustee – from time to time we need Trustees to support our Board. Please check our news pages and social media for details on how to apply.
