Craig at CK Bikes (formerly of Harvard, now at 3 Taylor Road, Littleton) will take “bikes, trikes, and scooters,” repair them, and then donate them to various local organizations, including Bike Academy in Lowell. Contact Craig at www.ckbikes.com or email@example.com to determine whether your bike can be donated.
The Friends of Pepperell Recreation collects “gently used bikes, trikes, scooters, ride-ons, strollers and/or other bike accessories.” Bikes must be in rideable condition. Bikes will be sold at their annual bike sale, which is currently scheduled for Saturday, May 2. Funds raised support the Pepperell recreation programs; unsold bikes from the sale will be donated to the Worcester Earn-A-Bike program. Bikes can be donated up until the time of sale, which is open to Harvard residents. For more information see www.friendsofpepperell.org/BikeSale.html
This recycling tip is brought to you by the Transfer Station Committee.
Editor’s Note: To gain entry to Harvard’s Transfer Station, residents must purchase an $80 sticker. The sticker entitles its holder to dispose of recyclable glass, paper, metal, plastic, textiles, and books at no charge. However, residents must purchase specially marked bags to dispose of nonrecyclable materials. These are available at the Harvard General Store, Harvard Outdoor Power Equipment, Westward Orchards (June through December), Moore’s Lumber and Hardware in Ayer, and Shop ’n Save in Ayer. The Press publishes these weekly tips to help readers reduce the volume of their trash while increasing the volume they recycle.
