Recycle your sneakers
WEBUTUCK — Students at Webutuck High School began collecting sneakers for the Nike Reuse-A-Shoe Program on Monday, Jan. 9. The program promotes a “greener” environment through the recycling of shoes which will be turned into materials used for the creation of playground surfaces, basketball courts and running tracks.Sneakers can be new, used, dirty, used, fashionable or athletic. Any brand of sneaker is accepted. A pair is not necessary; just one of a pair will suffice.Dropoff boxes are located in the Webutuck High School, Eugene Brooks Intermediate School and Webutuck Elementary School, as well as the NorthEast-Millerton Library and the North East Community Center (NECC). The collection will end Friday, March 9.
