Drop-off locations

Working Bikes accepts donations of bikes, bike parts, crutches, sewing machines, and wheelchairs. To donate, come to our warehouse/shop at 2434 S. Western Ave. any time during business hours, 12-7pm Wednesday and Thursday, 12-5 pm Friday and Saturday. At all other times, if the lights are on but the door is locked please ring the buzzer.

If our warehouse is too far for you to travel, you can bring your bicycles to one of our drop off locations, shown on the map below. You can also look at our events calendar to see if there is an upcoming bike drive scheduled in your community.

While we prefer that you drop off your bicycles, if you are unable to transport them or if you have a larger number of bikes we may be able to arrange to pick them up. To contact us about a potential pick up, email us or call 773-847-5440 during business hours. If there’s no answer please leave us a voicemail and we’ll get back to you as soon as possible! Please remember that we are primarily a volunteer organization, so patience is appreciated.

If you donate at a drop off location where donation letters are unavailable, you can email us to receive a letter for tax purposes.
