What to do with unwanted bikes?

Instead of taking your old bikes to the tip why not give them to the Re-Cycle centre?

Our trained technicians will service each bike and then offer the bikes to volunteer groups and the public at a reduced price.

The Re-Cycle centre is located at:

2 Brunell Road, Leigh-on-Sea, Essex, SS9 5JL

Opening times:

  • Tuesday 9am to 3pm
  • Wednesday 9am to 3pm
  • Thursday 4pm to 8pm (Sales day)
  • Friday 9.30am to 3.00pm
