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.

Simple Recycling program offers recycling options

Beginning the first week of April, Simple Recycling will be transitioning from green bags to orange bags making the bags and items more distinguishable from the regular trash and recycling placed on the curb. Shelby residents can expect to receive an orange postcard and two (2) orange Simple Recycling bags in the mail the last week of March. During the transition, Simple Recycling will still pick up the green bags if they are left out and will leave additional orange Simple Recycling bags for future use.

If you need additional bags, call 866-835-5068, visit, or email Read More...
