Bicycle Recycling: Why Recycle Them?

Bicycle components are made from a wide variety of materials. These materials can range from steel, aluminum, titanium, carbon fiber, and rubber. The predominant material used, however, is metal. Metals are one of the best materials to recycle. And guess what? Bicycles are chocked full of them! 

Scrap metal buyers typically pay good prices for them, and your old bicycles are approximately 95% metal. The frame, the handlebars, the wheels, the spokes, and even the brakes are all metal components that can be put to good recyclable use.
