What is Recycles?

Recycles is a national social enterprise, run by The Salvation Army. It provides free training for volunteers in how to repair bicycles, with the aim of helping them into employment. At the same time it offers repairs and sales to the general public, with all profits being reinvested in the programme. 

If you would like to know more, or to become involved in the Recycles programme, why not Plan a Visit to come and see the programme in action. 

PLEASE NOTE During the pandemic, visits are not possible.
