Free bike maintenance workshops, run by Zero Waste Highland Perthshire in conjunction with The Bike Station Perth, will be held in Aberfeldy in the New Year. The six-week course will commence on Tuesday 12 January 2016 and will offer sessions at 1pm and 3pm at Breadalbane Community Campus, with evening workshops also being planned for a later date. Zero Waste Highland Perthshire is a project funded by Zero Waste Scotland and delivered by Perth & Kinross Council to encourage the community to reduce, reuse and recycle more, sending less waste to landfill. Over 4,000 bikes were taken to Recycling Centres in Perth and Kinross during 2014, so knowing how to carry out simple repairs can help keep your bike on the road or mountain track for longer. The Bike Station Perth collects bikes from Recycling Centres throughout Perth and Kinross, refurbishing them and selling them on for many more years of use. Since it opened in 2010, over 19,000 bikes have been collected from throughout Perth and Kinross, with 287 tonnes of waste diverted from landfill. Experts from The Bike Station Perth will be on hand at the workshops to talk you through aspects of maintenance such as brakes, tyres, wheels and gears. Everyone is welcome, but booking is essential as places are limited. To book your place on the workshops, please call 01738 475289 or email email@example.com For further information about Zero Waste Highland Perthshire, visit www.pkc.gov.uk/zerowastecommunity
