Alderman Waguespack and his staff regularly remove abandoned bicycles throughout the ward.  The remaining parts are given to Working Bikes, an organization that diverts bicycles from the waste stream in Chicago by repairing them for sale and charity.


Bikes that have rust, bent or missing wheels, deflated tires or broken chains may be removed immediately.  If it is unclear whether a bicycle is abandoned, we will leave a notice on the bike and remove it at a later time if it is unclaimed.

To report an abandoned bike contact our office.  Please make sure to let us know the location and description of the bicycle.
