SCUL is offered donations on a fairly regular basis, and we have some guidelines for handling donations to SCUL. Since it takes time and energy to sort donations, find storage space, or strip derelicts and eject the garbage into space, the value of the donation needs to outweigh the cost in time and energy to SCUL. We also pay rent on our space, so we can't take more than we need.
What we accept
Curvy old steel bicycle frames in usable condition; not bent or rusted out.
Items that are used up frequently, such as inner tubes, lubricants, cleaners, rags, fasteners, abrasives, Earth beer.
High-quality ship parts.
Tools that significantly expand our capabilities.
Raw materials for specific, active projects such as plywood if we're building wood shelving.
Earth Credits are always helpful.
What we cannot accept
We cannot use cheap department-store bikes, such as Huffy, Murray, AMF, RoadMaster, or Sears, unless they are vintage.
