Marlborough – All towns are welcome to take part in the Bicycle Recycle Day to be held Saturday, Aug. 8, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m., at First Church, 37 High St., Marlborough.

 

Any bicycle is a good bicycle to reclaim/reuse, and racing, mountain, bmx, cruiser, kids, old/new types will be accepted. The aim of the Bicycle Recycle Day is to keep bicycles from being destroyed when they can be reused. Too many are thrown away or end up at the transfer station in the scrap metal pile. There is no cost to donate, and your old or new unwanted bicycle will get a new home.

 

If you are not able to drop your bicycle/s off, you can call to arrange to have it picked up. For more information, contact Dennis Wood at 508-277-7513 or denwaynewood@yahoo.com.
