Georgia Recycling Coalition to promote shoe recycling
Along with soda cans and old newspapers, Georgia residents
can bring their gently worn shoes to be recycled.
In partnership with Soles4Souls®, the Georgia Recycling
Coalition (GRC) will place bins at their locations to
offer an alternative to residents throwing their worn
shoes away. The collected shoes will be shipped to Soles4Souls
for distribution to the 1.5 billion people without shoes.
Soles4Souls takes gently worn shoes and repurposes them
in one of 125 countries around the world. A small percentage
which cannot be distributed will be recycled.
