Reuse-a-Shoe Program: Recycle Your Old Shoes!
Village of Wauconda
is proud to continue its partnership with the Solid Waste Agency of Lake County
(SWALCO) and the Wauconda United Partnership in their shoe recycling and reuse
program. Currently all types of shoes can be brought in and collected, with the
exception of rollerblades, ice skates, and winter boots. All other boots, like
dress boots, hiking boots, and rain boots are accepted. Our collection boxes are
located at the following Wauconda locations:
Village Hall, 101 N. Main St.
Wauconda Area Public Library, 801 N Main St.
Wauconda District #118 Schools
Federated Church, 200 Barrington Rd.
Wauconda Park District, 600 N. Main Street
Wauconda Township, 505 W. Bonner Road
Please tie the laces or rubber band your pairs before you drop them off. Shoes
in any condition, from new, gently used, or worn will be accepted. The great
news is that 95% or more of the materials collected will be recycled or reused.
This is material that would normally end up in landfills. Since 2008 the Village
of Wauconda has collected over 20,000 pairs or 30 tons of shoes. This is
equivalent to filling two rail cars full of shoes or equal to the weight of six
full-grown elephants. You can make a difference.

website or call (847) 336-9340.
