Donate your old shoes for America Recycles Day

The Office of Energy & Sustainability and Sustainability Ambassadors are offering an opportunity to recycle old shoes on America Recycles Day (Nov. 15). A table to accept donations will be set up in Tinkham Veale University Center Monday, Nov. 15, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m., and Tuesday, Nov. 16, from 1 to 5 p.m.

The donated shoes will be sorted into shoes that can be reused and shoes that will be recycled. Because shoes have so many different materials in them, it’s very important to recycle them separately from regular street recycling. Shoes that are in good condition will be sent to the Physical Resource Center, so stop by if you are in need of some new shoes.
