OV-fiets recycle: old is new again

When an OV-fiets ends its life cycle, parts of it will be given a second life as components for brand-new OV-fiets bicycles, thanks to the partnership between OV-fiets and Roetz-Bikes.

As many parts of old OV-fiets bicycles as possible are used to build new bikes that are as good as the original. That way, OV-fiets can reduce waste of usable materials and contribute to sustainable mobility.

This approach has even more benefits: re-using old materials means that fewer raw materials are needed to produce new parts. Roetz-Bikes is a bicycle manufacturer that chooses to use sustainable products to produce stylish and robust bicycles through re-use of materials and local production in social workshops.
