Saving bikes from landfill

Leah Knapp
Murdoch University

MU ends up with a bunch of abandoned bikes at the end of each semester as students return to their home countries or cities. In the past these bikes were simply put in the metal recycling skips.

This September we donated 5 abandoned bikes to the Dismantle Bike Rescue programme, and with the end of the Uni year looming no doubt we'll have other bikes to pass on soon. It's great to know these resources are finding a new life and helping young people learn new skills.

Hello Leah, Great to see unwanted bicycles rescued. A photo (e.g. bikes being delivered to Dismantle) would earn additional points. Are Murdoch students are involved in the bike rescue effort?
