  • Upgrade bikes so they can last another 4-5 years out on the streets.

  • Other options that have a social dimension, e.g. institutions or people with special skills to be involved in disassembly or similar.

  • …other options?

Together with the operations team at Donkey Republic, you will develop a business plan to guide the decision process.
