At the Bike Co-op in Fort Collins we are responsible for housing and
recording abandoning bikes and work with the police to try to get bikes
back to their owners. Every bike that is brought in as a donation or
abandonded is logged. We cross check our database with the police and after
a certain amount of days they are released to us. We are contacted to cut
locks and remove bikes from apartment buildings, businesses, etc. You can
check out our website that tells about our program.
http://fcbikecoop.org/programs/recovered.php. There is a link to contact
the coordinator at the bottom of the page.
