Recycling & Waste

Shoes

Disposal

Shoes that are no longer usable can be placed in the trash.

Light-up shoes may contain mercury in the batteries and do not belong in the trash.​ Bring them to a household hazardous waste collection site for free.

Recycle

Recycle old athletic shoes at most Nike retailers. (Nike's Reuse-A-Shoe Program)

Shoes in usable condition are accepted at USAgain drop boxes located throughout the Twin Cities. See below for more information.

Some haulers offer curbside collection of shoes, clothing and other textiles. Contact your hauler or city for more information.
