Bicycle Recycle

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:

Bicycle-Recycle in Wilton
Saratoga Springs,
Looking to clean out your garage or storage space, while providing
essential transportation to needy members of our community?
Saratoga Healthy Transportation Network (SHTN) and Saratoga County
Economic Opportunity Council will be collecting bicycles at the EMS
Store in Wilton on Saturday  October  2nd .  Store hours are 10 am to
9pm and bikes will be accepted Friday and Saturday all day. Bicycles in
good condition will be accepted to be used in the Bicycle program (to
benefit low income community members). Representatives from SHTN will
be available Saturday 11 am to 4 pm.
Volunteers will refurbish the bikes throughout the winter months, and
get them ready for distribution to individuals or families without the
means to purchase such equipment on their own.
In the last 4 years, hundreds of bicycles have been  collected,
repaired and distributed to members of the local community and track
workers through Saratoga Healthy Transportation Network and the EOC.
October 2nd and 3rd are  EMS “Club Discount Days” and when you donate a
bike at the EMS store, you will be eligible to get a 20% in-store
“club” discount at the store on that day ( check with EMS for details)
.  For more information about Saratoga Healthy Transportation Network
