Recycle Heart & Sole

Posted by on Jan 14, 2019 in Learning Center

Recycle Heart & Sole Your previously-destined-for-the trash shoes are greatly desired by those who have none. The District is again partnering with Changing Footprints, a local not-for-profit organization that gets shoes on the feet of those in need right here in Indiana.

We will be collecting shoes at participating Hendricks County schools and the District’s office from February 4th through 8th.  Our past collections have been very successful and we have high hopes for this year too! All shoes will be accepted (no inline skates or ice skates).  The following is a list of drop-off points:

  • Avon
    • Maple Elementary School
  • Brownsburg
    • Cardinal Elementary School
    • Hendricks County Solid Waste Management District Office
  • Clayton
    • Cascade Middle School
    • Mill Creek East Elementary School
  • Danville
    • Danville North Elementary School
    • Danville South Elementary School
  • Lizton
    • Tri-West Middle School
  • North Salem
    • North Salem Elementary School
  •  Pittsboro
    • Pittsboro Primary School
  • Plainfield
    • Brentwood Elementary School
    • Central Elementary School
    • Van Buren Elementary School

If you miss out on this year’s Recycle Heart & Sole collection, you can always donate your shoes to Goodwill in Avon, Brownsburg and Plainfield.  And if you are the athletic type, soccer cleat recycling is available at Avon Sports Apparel.
