The Nanaimo Recycling Exchange and the City of Nanaimo are cooperating to find a home for bikes that have been abandoned around the City. The City is bringing all abandoned bikes found into the NRE.
Once at the NRE, these bikes are held for TWO WEEKS, after which point they are sold in the Community Market for fair and appropriate prices.
If your bike has been stolen, please file a report with the RCMP. You can then call the NRE or come in and see us to check if your stolen bike is among the recovered bikes.
Please note: If claiming a stolen bike, you MUST be able to provide a description of the bike and its serial number, as well as the RCMP report.
There is NO set weekly schedule for bikes arriving at the NRE – they are brought to us as they are found.
