Run In & Recycle™ is a shoe recycling program which began on America Recycles Day in 2007 in partnership with REI. This is the first ongoing retailer shoe recycling program in the country. REI acts as the retail collection point. Then, the shoes are collected by the Adult Training and Habilitation Center staff and are sorted by ATHC clients for reuse and recycling.
Since 2007, the Run In & Recycle™ program has collected several tons of shoes for recycling from the Bloomington and Maple Grove REI stores. Shoes that are unfit for reuse are recycled.
Run In & Recycle™ drop off locations include:
• REI-750 American Blvd W, Bloomington, MN 55420
Contact number: (952) 884-4315
• REI-11581 Fountains Dr, Maple Grove, MN 55369
Contact number: (763) 493-7861
This program also serves as a recycling option for shoes that are returned to REI and are no longer sellable. It is a great way for REI to provide a value added service to their customers.
