In conjunction with World Environment Day, Sports America Kids Month, Great Outdoors Month, Student Safety Month, and the beginning of Summer ---- the SERC Library will be Recycling Sneakers!
From Monday, June 6th thru Wednesday, June 22nd the Library will be collecting sneakers to recycle!
Only athletic shoes (all brands) are acceptable! (BUT no metal - such as eyelets, cleats or spikes) Shoes must be dry ----- Please do not tie shoes together.
Nike recycles old sneakers into a material called "NIKE Grind". This product is used for a variety of athletic surfaces including basketball courts, running tracks and playground surfacing.
See now you know why we are "tying" it into all the activities going on this month! SO ---- Bring in those sneakers!
