Bicycle Recycling and Repair Services

Bicycle recycling and repair services are in plan, but not yet implemented. Sauber's goal is to help the City of East Palo Alto organize a comprehensive recycling, refurbishing, and hazardous waste reclamation municipal/industry partnership which would include this service. For now, Sauber recommends you see Menlo Velo
in Menlo Park, California for repairing your bicycles.
The bicycle recycling and repair department is hoped to be located in the Ravenswood Industrial Park of East Palo Alto, either as a stand-alone facility or combined with a comprehensive repair and recycling facility.
Bicycles would be repaired at this facility, and as well, used bicycles would be stripped for their parts or recyclable materials.
This department would take advantage of the growing number of cyclists commuting to Facebook and other companies in the Menlo Business Park and adjacent Baylands as well as provide a long needed service to East Palo Alto community residents for whom bicycle travel is a popular and economical means of transportation given our city's size and level terrain.
In the long-term, it is planned for this department to resell and repair hybrid bicycles such as the ELF solar bicycle.
Byron Mills of East Palo Alto is intended to become the Manager of the Bicycle Recycling and Repair Department of the Sauber Janitorial Services division of DSBE
