Volunteers needed: Waste Management and a local, nonprofit organization are putting together a recycling campaign to encourage people in the local community to recycle old shoes. The event will launch from King School Park on the morning of April 21 where there will be food, snacks, shirts and specific instructions for volunteers who will be placing the shoe recycling bags at the doorsteps of houses – no further interaction is needed. We expect all volunteers to arrive around 9:00 am and be done by 11:00am.
