Recycled Rides


The next Recycled Rides giveaway will be in Fall 2023.

Vehicle #33 has been awarded!

Each fall and spring Washburn Tech’s Recycled Rides program helps put reliable cars back on the road for the benefit of an individual or nonprofit group for whom transportation can be a life-changing gift. We will post a link to the current application each semester. You can check this page and our social media for application deadline information.
