Green Guru, the designer and manufacturer of durable, eco-friendly luggage, bike bags, and outdoor gear has partnered with Bike Fixtation, a leader in public use bicycle repair equipment, to provide simple and cost effective inner tube recycling services for bike rooms, repair kiosks and other public use bicycle repair stations.
The inner tube recycling program was born from a desire to recycle damaged inner tubes that were being discarded at Bike Fixtation’s self-service bicycle repair kiosks in Minneapolis.
“Every time we would go to our kiosks we would see damaged inner tubes that had been thrown in the trash. We would salvage tubes and recycle them when possible, but the need for convenient inner tube recycling was apparent,” said Alex Anderson, one of Bike Fixtation‘s founders.
The tube recycling program was recently implemented at Bike Fixtation’s existing bicycle repair kiosks in the Uptown Transit Station and Lake Street/Midtown LRT Station in Minneapolis. Secure tube recycling boxes are now available to all customers and the public at large. Bike Fixtation will collect, sort, and send the used inner tubes collected in these boxes to Green Guru, who will then clean the inner tubes and fashion them into useful cycling and outdoor products.
Secure tube recycling boxes are now available through Bike Fixtation. For information on the inner tube recycling program, you can contact Bike Fixtation at [email protected].Tweet Print
