Shelby Township joins effort to reduce wastewater flowing into damaged sewer

Following the failure of the 11-foot diameter drain near 15 mile and Utica roads in Fraser , Shelby Township is joining an effort spanning approximately 150,000 homes and 300,000 residents in Macomb County to reduce the wastewater flowing into the damaged sewer.

The effort is just to curb any unnecessary wastewater flow such as running sinks or leaking faucets. The damage to the sewer line in Fraser has no effect on the county or township’s water supply, and there are no concerns with water quality resulting from the sewer line failure.

New format selected for electronics recycling program


After researching ways to save the monthly Shelby Township Electronics Recycling Program, members of the township’s Solid Waste and Recycling Committee and officials from GreenTech Recyclers found common ground to continue the long successful program.


Under the new agreement between the SWARC and GreenTech, the event will once again be open to everyone, irrespective of the community in which they live from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. the final Saturday of the month at Shelby Township Hall at 52700 Van Dyke Ave.


The new terms of the collection, which occurs the final Saturday of every month, have each car dropping off items paying a $5 fee with $1 of that fee going to the local charity staffing the collection. The fee also includes up to one Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) monitors and televisions. Additional CRTs can be recycled for $10 per CRT.
