A serendipitous meeting occurred today. I've been hanging around in Cambridge and through a new friend of a new friend met Andy at Trailers from trash at workshop54 at Newmarket Rd in the City.
As the name suggests, the business builds custom trailers from scrap bikes, metal parts from office furniture & what have you.
Trailers from trash is a worker's cooperative and has been going for a very short time, (Andy only learned to weld a year ago!), but they have already built trailers to carry furniture, trailers to carry 2 more bicycles (pictured) and lately they have received a request from Cambridge council to build a recycled trailer to carry literature about recycling!
I've asked Andy if he cound work up a price for the frame of my long considered A0 size poster advertising trailer. Watch this space. Trailers from trash can be contacted at firstname.lastname@example.org
