Helen Gelband takes apart a bike to put in the last truck of the day — the third truck they filled with donated bikes. She occasionally works overseas within the group “Wheels of Africa” which helps promote a bike culture and keeps people able to work and go to school when they have no other transportation.

This E-Care recycling event, which takes place twice a year in Arlington, provides the opportunity to get rid of hazardous household material, trash or junk that cannot be put in the garbage, but also accepts things like eyeglasses, shoes, bikes, and other items which would work in another country. Those who go will also get a glimpse of yet another group of Arlingtonians who are donating a Saturday morning to help people less fortunate.
