Project ReCycle able to expand in new space

Alberto “AJ” Stapleton stands among more than 1,000 donated bicycles at Project ReCycle’s new location 13796 Compark Blvd. in unincorporated Arapahoe County. A Texas developer donated the 21,000-square-foot space where the charity now houses its repair shop, inventory and resale shop called “The Kick Stand.”

As Alberto Stapleton walks across the floor of an empty warehouse, his tall, sturdy frame seems to disappear in the vast space.“This is a long ways from the eight storage units we used to have to work out of in Littleton,” said Stapleton. He serves as executive director of Project Recycle, a charity organization founded in 2008 that repairs donated bicycles and puts them in the hands of those less fortunate.Stapleton said the space, donated by the private developer who owns the building, has added momentum and reach to the group’s mission.


“We were actually surprised when we pulled all the bikes out of storage and set them up,” he said. “We had no idea how many we had because they were all stuffed into these public storage units, but now, we see how much more we have to give.”

The group moved into the space at 13796 Compark Blvd. in unincorporated Douglas County in October. Stapleton said the extra breathing room has fostered the addition of nine new bicycle repair stations, and the creation of a new resale shop called The Kick Stand.

While Project Recycle accepts bike donations of all makes, models and condition, some are not always a good for kids or the average rider, according to Stapleton.

Higher-end bikes, such as those with specialized frames or those that may have a higher resale value, are sold, and the proceeds go back into Project Recycle.

But Stapleton said the new space is just the beginning of bigger things to come.

“The bikes aren’t always just for kids,” he explained. “We have a lot of bikes for parents as well. Some need them to get to and from work or the bus; others often ride with their kids.”

Project Recycle, which has given away more than 3,000 bikes since its inception, is looking at expansions into Castle Rock, Colorado Springs and New Mexico.

Among Project ReCycle’s biggest needs right now is a pickup truck to pull a small covered trailer.

“We’ve got a lot of work ahead of us before that happens,” Stapleton said. “But it’s worth it, when you see that smile on a kid’s face. That’s what makes it all worthwhile.”

Announcing PROJECT RE-CYCLE: Our 3t Ministry Bike Program

3t Ministry Bike Program Receives Own Name

donated bikeIt’s official friends, PROJECT RE-CYCLE will be the new name for our bike program here at 3t Ministry.

We invited our Facebook fans and friends to vote and suggest names for our bike program.  The decision to name the program was made by Executive Director late last year.  “We are committed to our Christian Values and that has been the core for 3t Ministry since the beginning.  Last year we found out that donors were more apt to donate a bike once they found out what 3T was all about.  After listening to our donors, we understood the need for a name that would give us immediate identity without having to explain what we did. We asked for suggestions for a name that clearly identified what we do…give away bikes. I think our fans and friends picked the right name.” Read more
