Alchemy Goods turning Usless into Usefull

alchemy: [al-kuh-mee] — noun1. any magical power or process of changing a common substance, usually of little value, into a substance of great value.

At Alchemy Goods we see potential in what others throw out. We look at old inner tubes and see a durable, waterproof fabric. By helping us save used inner tubes, you can reduce your own impact on our planet.

Ask your local bike shop if they recycle with us or contact our Recycling Coordinator to see where your nearest recycler is located.

Sharing Wheels in Everett already recycles with Alchemy. Click here to find out more about Sharing Wheels or go to Green Everett's Wikispace click on the link to the Community Bike Shop.

Do you work for or own a bike shop?

Is there something that rubs you the wrong way about throwing out used inner tubes?

We can help.

Here’s how it works:

Contact — Call or email our Recycling CoordinatorInclude your shop’s address, phone number and a contact name.We will send you a packet with everything you’ll need to get started.

Collect — Save only tubes that are:
26” mountain tubes
700c hybrid tubes (wider than 35c)
Un-cut (blowouts & patches are o.k.)
Without flat protection (no thick tubes or slime)
Ship — When you save at least 25 lbs (45 tubes), slap a prepaid shipping label on the box and hand it to a FedEx Ground driver.
