As part of a new agreement between the Shelby Township Solid Waste and Recycling Committee (SWRC) and GreenTech Recyclers, the popular Electronics Recycling event will once again be free of charge to residents throughout metro Detroit.
The new agreement with GreenTech, and the reduction in the number of collection dates from 11 to four, negated the need for a $5 fee for users and a $10 fee for Cathode Ray Tube televisions and monitors.
The key to returning the program to a free event was reducing the number of collections for a calendar year. Now, collections will be quarterly with the first event of 2018 taking place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Jan. 27 on the township’s campus at 52700 Van Dyke Ave. Subsequent collections will take place April 28, July 28 and Oct. 27.
Winter taxes become due on Dec. 1 and are payable without penalty until Feb. 28. On March 1, all unpaid taxes are forwarded as ‘delinquent’ to the Macomb County Treasurer for payment, with additional penalties assessed by the County Treasurer. If tax due dates fall on a Saturday, Sunday, or legal holiday, the due date will be the immediately succeeding business date, per MCL 211.44a(6) for summer taxes, and MCL 211.78a(2) for winter taxes .
