Take your unused, outgrown or worn out shoes to the Shoe Recycling Event in Dakota County.
If you have been using some of the recent at home time to purge and clean you maybe found extra shoes. I discovered we had shoes that our girls had outgrown along with some boots that were passed the keeping warm stage.
Gather those extra shoes and boots and drop them off at the upcoming Shoe Recycling Event in Dakota County. The event will take place the week of November 9-16, 2020. All bins will be outside and open 24/7.
Shoes in good condition will be cleaned up and reused by giving to those in need. Shoes that are no longer in good condition will be separated and the parts such as rubber and textiles will be recycled.
This is an event where even the shoes that are beyond the “use again” stage will find a use and that’s why I think it’s important to share it. Shoes are something that take up the landfills and don’t break down like some clothing does.
Where and when can you drop off shoes?
