Bike Fixtation, Green Guru launch tube recycling partnership

Published January 30, 2013

MINNEAPOLIS, MN (BRAIN) — Bike Fixtation partnered with Green Guru to provide simple and cost effective inner tube recycling services for bike rooms, repair kiosks and other public use bicycle repair stations. 

Bike Fixtation will collect, sort, and send the used inner tubes collected in these boxes to Green Guru, who will then clean the inner tubes and fashion them into useful cycling and outdoor products.

“Bike Fixtation is used to rescuing cyclists with a flat tube, now we can rescue that flat tube from the dumpster,” says Chad DeBaker, Bike Fixtation’s president and one the company founders. “Both our company and Green Guru are built on a foundation of sustainability and this partnership was a natural fit,” he added.

Green Guru is based in Boulder, Colorado, and designs, manufactures, and sells durable eco-friendly luggage bags, bike accessory, and lifestyle products from reclaimed materials including inner tubes.

The tube-recycling program is implemented at Bike Fixtation’s existing bicycle repair kiosks in the Uptown Transit Station and Lake Street/Midtown LRT Station in Minneapolis. Secure tube recycling boxes are now available to all customers and the public at large. For more information visit bikefixtation.com, or call (612) 568-3498.
