Worn But Not Worn Out – Give Your Old Shoes A New Life

Westmoreland Cleanways continues its successful partnership with Community Recycling's Shoebox Recycling Program to collect "worn but not worn out" shoes and send them to developing countries. Over one TON of shoes have been collected and distributed to people who truly need them, keeping them out of the landfill, decreasing foot-borne illness, creating economic opportunities in the local economies, and supporting Westmoreland Cleanways' educational and outreach programs. Drop-off boxes are located at Westmoreland Cleanways Recycling Center, Chambers Hall at the University of Pitt-Greensburg campus, and at several other community locations. Click here for collection sites and the types of shoes we can accept. If you would like to host a collection site or even a special collection event for Westmoreland Cleanways, please contact us at 724-879-4020.
