Monticello Intermediate School’s East Lab is collecting old, worn-out athletic shoes until March 9. The shoes will be recycled by Nike, through its Reuse-A-Shoe program, transforming them into Nike Grind, a material used in creating athletic and playground surfaces. Any brand of athletic shoes can used. No sandals, flip flops, dress shoes, boots or shoes containing metal such as cleats or spikes. Donation boxes are set up at Monticello Intermediate School.
