Find a Shoe Recycling Location with RecycledRunners.com

Almost all of us have an old pair of athletic shoes that are either gathering dust in the back of our closet, or they’re so ragged that it’s embarrassing to wear them out in public. Instead of throwing these shoes in the trash and adding them to our wastestream, you can recycle them.

Recycling old running shoes can mean two different things. You can donate them to someone less fortunate who will reuse the old shoes, or you can give them to something cool like Nike’s Reuse a Shoe Program, which recycles old shoes into surfaces like blacktop, outdoor tracks and basketball courts.

Where can you recycle your old running shoes? An online shoe recycling directory –RecycledRunners.com – will point you in the right direction. The homepage of the website tells you just how easy it is:

The website helps both people interested in recycling old running shoes, and companies that actually do the recycling.

To look for a shoe recycling program near you use the RecycledRunners location map.
