Area residents who want to get rid of old bicycles and can do so while helping a good cause by participating in a recycling program by leaving their bicycles at George Mason High School on Saturday, Oct. 24 from 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.
The bicycle collection will take place in the school’s parking lot on the Haycock Road entrance to the high school. Bicycles and bicycle parts collected as part of the drive will be donated to Bikes for the World, an organization that cleans up and repairs bicycles and ships them to communities in the U.S. and around the world where residents need bikes for inexpensive transportation to get to work, school, and social services.
Bikes do not need to be working to be donated, but Bikes for the World requests at $10 donation to help with shipping costs. For more information or to volunteer to help with the drive, contact Mason student Cole Casteel at firstname.lastname@example.org.
