SWALCO Reuse-A-Shoe Program

Looking for a fun community project to join? SWALCO's Reuse-A-Shoe program might be the perfect fit for your organization.

Every year, across the globe, millions of pairs of shoes end up in landfills or disposed of in some way, creating a lot of waste. It is estimated that 85% or more of these unwanted items end up in our landfills, which here in the U.S. and around the world, are filling up fast.

No matter what age we are, most of us have at least a few pairs or more of unwanted shoes hanging out in our closets. Some may be shoes we just don’t wear, shoes we or family members have outgrown, or those that have gotten a little worn around the edges. Much of what we consider unwanted waste can actually be recycled or repurposed.

With the pursuit of sustainability in mind, SWALCO developed a program to reuse those shoes and we have been offering the program for over a decade now. Many tons of shoes have been collected through this program to date, and, these tons, have all been recycled or reused.
