Recycled Art Competition

Create beautiful art from discarded materials.

Residents of Shelby Township and neighboring communities are invited to participate in our friendly competition to promote recycling and "green" living. Instead of tossing away single-use, everyday items, we want you to think creatively on how to reuse them for beauty and new purpose.
