What to Do with Old Scooters

When it comes to disposing of old scooters, there are a few responsible methods to avoid the landfill. If your scooter is still in good working condition, consider donating it to a local charity or youth center. Many organizations will gladly accept used scooters and give them a second life.

If your scooter is beyond repair or is no longer safe to ride, you can recycle it. Start by checking with your local recycling center to see if they accept scooters. Some recycling centers have specific facilities or programs for accepting and recycling scooters. If your recycling center doesn't accept scooters, they may be able to provide information on recycling options in your area.

Another option is to sell or give away your old scooter. Online platforms such as Craigslist or local community Facebook groups are great places to find someone who may be interested in your scooter for parts or to refurbish it.
