Stinky shoe collection at Chute

The Chute Middle School Environmental Club is partnering with SWANCC (Solid Waste Agency of Northern Cook County) to conduct a gym shoe collection drive.

SWANCC coordinates an annual collection for old athletic court-type shoes in cooperation with Nike’s Reuse-A-Shoe program.

Shoes collected at Chute, 1400 Oakton St., are taken to the SWANCC transfer station in Glenview and are then transported to Nike’s facility where they become Nike Grind – a material that is used to make running tracks and other athletic court surfaces.
