Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day

Trying to dispose of items you don't always use everyday may be confusing and difficult, often leading to a collection building up in your garage, shed, basement or other places in your house. The Solid Waste and Recycling Committee has put together the Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day to make it easier for residents to get rid of unwanted chemicals and other items they may not know what else to do with. Best of all, it's completely free.

Because of the cost to properly dispose of the items and the sheer volume of participation, THIS EVENT IS FOR SHELBY TOWNSHIP RESIDENTS ONLY.
The collection site for this event has changed from the municipal campus to River Bends Park at 5700 22 Mile Road, between Shelby and Ryan roads.
