Drop-Off Locations

Some groups have offered to act as drop-offs for the program for individuals or families who may have a few shoes they would like to drop-off to be recycled. Please scroll down the list to find a location nearest you.  Seasonal sites (those who collect for only a portion of the year) will be listed first with the dates they are collecting, followed by a list of our year-round Reuse-A-Shoe drop off locations who collect all year round.  Please drop-off your shoes during operating/business hours. Please be sure to "match-up" pairs by tying the laces together or, if there are no laces, simply use large rubber bands or zip-ties to hold them together.

If you have more than 15-20 pairs of shoes, please contact SWALCO. These locations are not for large shoe collections. If you wish to collect shoes, or have a large number of them, we would love to have you join us, but please contact us to arrange a special drop-off at the SWALCO Office, or register and participate through our program.  We can also provide some supplies and materials to help make your collection an even more fun and worthwhile experience.
Please click on the map icon below for our interactive map. Hit the location you wish to visit and directions will be prompted automatically.
