Shelby Township SWARC reopens electronics recycling to all communities

After researching ways to save the monthly Shelby Township Electronics Recycling Program, members of the township’s Solid Waste and Recycling Committee and officials from GreenTech Recyclers found common ground to continue the long successful program. pi5eKkkiB

Under the new agreement between the SWARC and GreenTech, the event will once again be open to everyone, irrespective of the community in which they live from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. June 25th at the Shelby Township Hall at 52700 Van Dyke Ave. 

The new terms of the collection, which occurs the final Saturday of every month, have each car dropping off items paying a $5 fee with $1 of that fee going to the local charity staffing the collection. The fee also includes up to one Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) monitors and televisions. Additional CRTs can be recycled for $10 per CRT.

“Everyone involved in the program or anyone who has used the program knows that it is very important to our residents and community,” said Township Trustee Paula Filar, who serves on the SWARC. “And I’m very happy to announce the event is back open to all communities and will allow us to collect even more electronics that would otherwise pollute our environment.”
