Shoe Recycling

BoxRecycle Your Old Gym Shoes


The Vernon Hills Public Works Department in cooperation with the Solid Waste Agency of Lake County (SWALCO) is a collection site for worn and gently worn gym shoes. Shoes can be dropped off at the Public Works facility located at 490 Greenleaf Drive, Monday through Friday, between 7 a.m. and 3:15 p.m. in the building's front lobby entrance. Please make sure that all metal is removed from all shoes.

If you are with an organization that would like to participate in the Reuse-A-Shoe program and become your own collection site, or would like more information about the program, please contact SWALCO directly by dialing 847-336-9340 or visit them at their website.
