...... and then find out where I can take some old bikes........

Call a local bike shop.  In my area there's a bike shop that take old bikes and fixes them up to be given to children in low-income families.
I wish! The local bike shop is a bit elite, they won't touch a bike below their standards and they are the only bike shop within 2 hours of here. I was thinking of the scrap metal place but I'll need to disassemble them and remove anything non-metal, so it will have to wait for when I have time.

Today was still a win, I got rid of my under-the-sink egg carton collection; Freecycled it to a guy with chickens.

You could also see if someone in your area is refurbishing bikes for "Bicycles for Humanity" which fixes up old bikes and sends them to third world countries.
