Shoe recycling for reuse is a no-cost, feel-good way for your organization or school to make money. ShoeBox Recycling will pay 50¢ per pound for paired, secondhand shoes.
How it works
ShoeBox gives you boxes. Fill ’em up and make ’em heavy, as in 40 pounds heavy! ShoeBox gives you a label, pays for UPS shipping, and sends you checks cut monthly based on the pounds of shoes collected. ShoeBox reports Waxhaw Elementary in Waxhaw and S. Ray Lowder Elementary PTA in Lincolnton are among N.C. groups participating.
Find your Solemate
Recyclers can put a note in their shoes and trace the path the shoes take to meet their new feet. Shoes are shipped for reuse around the globe.
