Saturday, April 27, 2019

The Shelby Township Beautification Committee is looking for volunteers and groups that are willing to adopt portions of Shelby Township roadways as part the 2019 Shelby Township Clean-Up Day approaches.
Join hundreds of volunteers for this 30-year tradition as we work to remove litter from Shelby Township roadways before enjoying a complimentary pizza and beverage lunch and the perennially beloved "Weirdest Thing Found" contest.

There are sections of roads available for adoption, and the Macomb County Department of Roads will install an "Adopt-A-County Road" sign to recognize a specific group's or organization's commitment to keep the township beautiful. If you or your family, business, church, scout group, or organization would like to be an adopter, call the Shelby Township Clerk's Office at 586-731-5102, email or visit

Walk-in registration for Clean-Up Day is available between 8:30 a.m. and 9:30 a.m. on Clean-Up Day, April 27th, at the Shelby Township Senior Center. Volunteers receive speed packets of cosmos flowers and a certificate of appreciation for their group. For more information, please contact the Shelby Township Clerk at 586-731-5102 before Clean-Up Day.
Registration Requires:
1)   Sign List of Safety Video viewed
2)   Receive safety vests and litter bags
3)   Receive your road assignment

Shelby Township Clean-Up Day, which has been sponsored by the Beautification Committee for nearly 30 years, features boys and girls groups, leaders, parents, civic and business groups as well as walk-in residents working to keep Township streets and roads clean and clear of litter.

Following clean-up, hard-working volunteers celebrate with pizza and pop and the perennially beloved ‘weirdest thing found’ contest.  Participants receive seed packets of cosmos flowers and a certificate of appreciation for their group. Many thanks go out to all involved, especially the Parks and Recreation Department, the Shelby Township Gardeners Club, Shelby TV and the Clerk’s Office. For more information, contact the Shelby Township Clerk at (586) 731-5102.
