Why Recycle Tennis Shoes
By getting your old shoes back in the game, you help to create a safe
recreation space for the children of Milwaukee and divert shoes from
KGMB and Recycling
Recycle your old sneakers and
help us build playgrounds! The City of Milwaukee is partnering with KGMB
in a Recycle Your Sneakers program, in which we have set a goal to
collect 75,000 pairs of shoes. This represents only one pair of shoes
for every 8 residents in the City of Milwaukee.
Numerous drop-off locations are available, including at our
office at 1313 W. Mount Vernon Avenue; please click on the link below to
learn more about this innovative recycling partnership and to find out
where to drop off your old shoes.
Here’s how you can help
athletic shoes of ANY BRAND are accepted. Once the shoes are collected,
they will be used, as surface material that can be used on playgrounds,
basketball courts, or running tracks.
Please: no metal, cleats, spikes, heels, dress shoes, boots, or sandals.
