Reuse-A-Shoe Recycling Program with Nike

We are collecting used running shoes which will later be ground up into small pieces, and used to make basketball courts, track fields, playgrounds, floor tiles, new shoes and apparel. This is a great way to get rid of all those old sneakers you have laying around and to "go green" by recycling. Bring one pair or bring ten! We will be collecting shoes at the Herndon Community Center from October to the end of November 2017. 

When recycling your shoes, please remember: 
• We can only recycle athletic shoes 
(running shoes, sneakers, etc.) 
• We accept all brands of shoes 
• No shoes containing metal 
• No cleats or dress shoes 
• No wet or damp shoes 
• No sandals or flip-flops
