Donate your used children’s bikes

The municipality will be collecting used children’s bicycles from 13 May to 1 July 2024. The bicycles will be fixed up and handed out to children in The Hague who are unable to buy a bicycle. Do you have a bicycle you are not using? Bring the bike to 1 of the 13 collection points in the city.

The municipality wants every child in The Hague to have a bicycle. Together with Stichting Leren Doen, its partners and the ANWB, the municipality collects some 2,000 secondhand children’s bikes each year.

How does it work?

You bring your bicycle to a collection point. These are located at a number of city farms, waste depots, Stichting Leren Doen and the ANWB headquarters. The municipality is looking for bicycles for children aged 8 to 12 years. Look at the collection points at Begin external link: link), end external link..

Apply for bike via Leergeld Den Haag

The restored children’s bikes reach the children through partners such as primary schools. Children with an Ooievaarspas can apply for a bike through Stichting Leergeld Den Haag. This costs € 7.50. They will then get a bicycle and a booklet (fietspaspoort). The booklet entitles the children to 3 years of repairs at 1 of the service points. They can also trade their bicycle for a larger model.

The restored children’s bicycles find a new owner through the city’s primary schools.
