Volunteers from Bikes for Humanity have done it again.

After a few years of hard work, they’ve once again filled a shipping container with hundreds of second-hand bicycles that will be distributed to disadvantaged people in Namibia.

The group is led by Wingecarribee Shire’s 2019 Citizen of the Year, Hans Radowitz, and fellow volunteer, Dave Johnson, with the help of the Resource Recovery Australia team.

Council’s Manager Waste and Resource Management, Clinton McAlister said that in addition to helping those less fortunate the volunteers were saving hundreds of bicycles from being scrapped or crushed.

“This is a truly wonderful effort and one that Council is extremely proud to support,” he said.
