Shoes

Please consider first repairing and reusing your shoes. Otherwise, gently worn shoes can be donated to local thrift stores and nonprofits. See below for a list of shoe cobblers/repair shops and thrift stores in Sonoma County.

If your shoes are beyond repair, recycle them using drop-off programs, also listed below. Please note that shoes cannot be recycled through the curbside blue recycling bin.
