We Want Your Used Shoes!

Help us earn 50 cents per pound by recycling your old used shoes. The shoes are shipped to third world countries where shoes are considered a luxury item.

All paired men’s, women’s and kids shoes that are still usable… That means – no holes in the soles and no wet or mildewed pairs. Paint spots and stains are OK!

Athletic shoes, dress shoes, timberland type work boots, sandals, heels, & flats.

Shoes We Can Not Accept: Ski Boots, Heavy Winter Boots, Roller Skates, Roller Blades, Singles, or shoes that are unusable due to holes, rips, mildew, mold, etc.

  • Each year over 200 Million shoes are landfilled
  • It takes over 200 years before a sneaker even starts to break down in a landfill
  • Used shoes are in great demand in developing countries
  • Recycled shoes create jobs and fuel local economies both here and abroadDROP YOUR USED SHOES IN THE RECYCLE BOX IN OUR LOBBY
    TUESDAY – SUNDAY FROM 1:00 – 4:00 PM
