'Reduce! Reuse! Re-bicycle!' UA Bike Drive With BICAS

BICAS (Bicycle Inter-Community Art and Salvage) and University of Arizona Residence Life Sustainability Education and Parking and Transportation Services present "Reduce! Reuse! Re-bicycle!" – the second annual recycle-your-bicycle bike drive.

  • Park Student Union (southwest side, near sand volleyball courts)
  • Coconino Hall (south side, along Second Street)
  • Santa Cruz Hall (on Highland Avenue, just north of Sixth Street)

At the end of each school year, hundreds of bicycles are abandoned on the UA campus. This year BICAS, in cooperation with the Residence Life Sustainability Education program and Parking & Transportation Services, aims to address this with a preventative approach.

Now in its second year, BICAS is launching a "Recycle Your Bicycle Bike Drive" and will be collecting unwanted bicycles and parts on the UA campus during the final week of the 2011-2012 academic school year, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day May 8-10. This year, BICAS has three separate locations near the major residence halls.

The primary goal of BICAS is to reduce the amount of reusable bikes and parts that enter the waste stream by recycling and repurposing these items through its community outreach and art development programs. For more information on the BICAS mission, programs and community services please visit the website.

BICAS accepts all donated bikes and parts throughout the year at 44 W. 6th St. Call 520-628-7950 for more information or for open hours.
