Go Run & Recycle

•Going Garbage & Recycling, 10564 Old Stage Rd., Sister Bay

•Peninsula Pulse office, 10331 Hwy 42, Ephraim

•Booth at the Door County Half Marathon starting line on race day, May 3 at Peninsula State Park.

Shoes collected will be remanufactured by a recycling company using a patented process to grind the shoes and turn them into sorbent material for oil spill cleanup kits. Please continue to donate gently used shoes to local resale shops or charities.
