Disposing of Your Old Bike with Ease
When the time comes to upgrade for a new bicycle, here is a better option than just throwing your old one away with the rest of your garbage. In addition to the negative environmental impact caused by improper disposal, think of people wishing to buy a bike but not being able to afford it. Along with that, the odds are that you can get yourself some reasonable tax deductions or price discounts for properly disposing of your unwanted bicycle, in the long run.
Depending on the condition of the bike you’re willing to get rid of, there are several options to choose from. If it’s still in working order or needs a slight repair, the best option for you would be donating it to a charity or any other nonprofit organization. It’s always best to see if your unwanted items can be repaired and reused before taking them to the recycling facility or a landfill. For eco-friendly junk removal, call WE JUNK because we are environmentally conscious about disposing of your items.
We Haul Away All Types of Bicycles
When you know it’s time to say goodbye to your old mountain bike, there are a couple of things to consider before tossing it in a landfill or leaving at the curbside. First, do no harm to nature. Being at the end of a life cycle, an old bicycle is almost fully recyclable! It consists of metal parts (such as chains, frames, etc.) which can be dismantled, broken down and reused to create new products. Some old bicycle parts can be processed and even used as a new component of a brand-new bike!
Because mountain bikes are primarily made for the off-road trails, they are cumbersome and hard to handle. Not to mention the large volumes of their components which may (and should) be recycled.
So, in case you need someone to land you a hand with your old mountain bike disposal, remember that WE JUNK.
