Get Socially Active

What is ReCycle?

Recycle is a community project which provides an environmentally friendly means of recycling unwanted bikes. Bicycles are donated to the project and are refurbished by our service team with the support of volunteers or local people wanting to gain work experience. The project provides a hands on training opportunity to gain new skills and experience.

Recycle has been formed as part of a European Social Fund and Big Lottery Fund project called Get Socially Active. Get Socially Active is an employability project aimed at supporting unemployed people to get involved in their local community whilst developing skills to become work ready.

How to join the project

The project is aimed at supporting people who live in Lewes, Newhaven, Peacehaven, Seaford and surrounding villages.

If you are unemployed or not working for reasons such as carer responsibilities, managing a disability or long term illness and aged over 19, we invite you to contact us to discuss the project.

If you are not able to join us as a participant on the project you could still get involved:

What you can gain from being a bicycle donator?

  • Knowing your once loved bicycle will be going to a good new home
  • Reducing potential landfill
  • Providing an opportunity for a local person to gain hands on practical refurbishment experience
