Consumers Energy announces pipeline project timeline

Consumers Energy has informed Shelby Township that it will begin tree clearing within the ITC Holdings Corp. corridor that runs north to south west of Schoenherr Road throughout the township. Tree clearing will begin this month prior to construction of a new pipeline within the corridor in May 2019.


Consumers Energy said tree clearing is being done early because of environmental regulations and ground conditions. Crews will be working at different locations on different days along the 7.5-mile corridor for three to four weeks. Specific day-by-day schedules were not available, but crews have already started tree clearing in Sterling Heights.


Crews should not be in any one location for very long, so the impact to specific landowners should be limited to one or two days. Crews will begin work between 7:30 a.m. and 8 a.m., Monday through Friday, and will work until 6 p.m.


For question and comments regarding the project, contact Consumers Energy at 800-731-2257 or email Visit for more information.

Electronics Recycling to be held free for township residents April 27 and Oct. 26
As part of agreements between the Shelby Township Solid Waste and Recycling Committee (SWRC), GFL Services and American Recycling, the popular Electronics Recycling event is free of charge to residents of Shelby Township.

Unfortunately, because of increases in costs to recycle electronics, the program has been reduced to two collections per year, April 27, 2019 and Oct. 26, 2019. Also new this year is that the program is open ONLY to Shelby Township residents. 

Collections will take place at River Bends Park at 5700 22 Mile Road. There is no cost for Shelby Township residents. The April 27 event will run from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. and the Oct. 26 collection will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. There will be no recycling events in January, February or March.
