The Re-Cycle scheme in Swansea, which is a project of the Black Environment Network and supported by The Countryside Council for Wales, takes in donations of unwanted bikes which are refurbished, repaired and supplied cheaply to low waged people, asylum seekers and refugees. According to research the British throw away over 1.2 million bicycles each year!

Simply take your unwanted bicycles to the Re-Cycle workshop, or browse the showroom at Catherine Street (alley between number 19A and The Mill pub), off Bryn y Mor Road Swansea.
The workshop is open on Mondays and Tuesdays from 9.30 am to 5pm.

A team of trained re-cycle volunteers check all bikes for safety and make any necessary repairs, stripping the worst ones for spares. Unfortunately, bikes with rusty wheel rims or a bent frame are not accepted.

Cyclists are also encouraged to work on their own bikes with re-cycle tools and help from volunteer mechanics.

Volunteer info :
As well as volunteers who repair the bicycles (training provided where required) there is a "Work-for-a-bike" scheme which asks you to volunteer for two days to earn a bicycle of your choice. Both can be arranged this with the re-cycle manager.
