What should I do when I’m done using my Bumbleride?

The most environmentally friendly way to dispose of your Bumbleride is to help keep it in use by donating to a family in need, passing it on to a friend, family member or selling online (Bumbleride's hold much of their original value).

The longer a Bumbleride lasts, the smaller the environmental impact.

If gifting or selling is not an available option, the aluminum and steel frame are often able to be recycled or redeemed for cash depending on your location. Thank you for using the links below to help prevent your Bumbleride, or as much as possible of your Bumbleride, from entering the landfill.

How to recycle your Bumbleride stroller or Bumbleride Packaging:
  1. Research which materials are recyclable at your curbside pickup and local waste center. 75% of Bumbleride's packaging is curbside recyclable in most cities (cardboard and poly bags). 

    1. Return your poly bags to your nearest location here, they are often not recycled at municipal locations despite them being accepted. 

    2. Bumbleride's frame is made mostly of aluminum. Contact your local scrap metal recycling operator to see if they accept aluminum with rivets and PE (polyethylene) plastic parts attached.  If removing Bumbleride rivets, safely and slowly drill the end of the rivet off with a 3/16 bit and power drill in an environment away from children. The PE parts on our frame are not recommended for recycling due to their glass fiber content (for strength).

  2. What can't be reused, redeemed or recycled, please place in your trash bin. 
We're working hard to increase the percentage of curbside recyclable packaging, eliminate our use of poly bags and look forward to sharing more details soon.
