The Recyclery's Tailwind For Tools Fundraiser!

Tailwind for Tools, our annual winter fundraiser is here!
You can make a difference by donating today to The Recyclery Collective. The Recyclery Collective is an educational bike shop that promotes sustainability by giving access to tools, skills and opportunities for collaboration.
Your generous donations enable us to sponsor more youth rides, train more young adults, give away more bikes, inaugurate new programming, and continue serving our community in Rogers Park! 2022 marks 16 years since The Recyclery was born in an Evanston basement. The pandemic has put us through a lot but we’re still here! Please consider financially supporting The Recyclery during this time. Your gifts go a long way in helping us serve our community’s cyclists.
Our achievements this year at The Recyclery include maintaining a safe environment in the face of a global pandemic, while fighting for transportation justice and equitable biking in our community! Despite it all we managed to keep our wonderful programs running and get bikes into the hands of those who really need them! We are so grateful to all of our wonderful volunteers who made this work happen! We have logged thousands of hours fixing kid bikes, youth bikes, and adult bikes to serve our Freecyclery Program!
