Tyre & Tube Recycling

GC Bike Repairs working in partnership with Velorim

Cycling is a superb sport, great for fitness and superb for the environment.

However, in the UK, over 9,300 tonnes of tyres and inner tubes go to landfill, each and every year.

The cycling industry is not being complacent. Retailers, service engineers, hire schemes and third sector groups are all working together to bring an end to the scrapping of tyres and inner tubes, once and for all.

Velorim has been set up to manage the collection and recycling of inner tubes and tyres on a national basis and we are delighted to announce that GC Bike Repairs has become a local partner.

You simply need to take your tyres and tubes to GC Bike Repairs where, for a small contribution, they will be disposed of ecologically.

Cycling should be the greenest, most ecologically friendly mode of transport, let’s work together to make this so.
