Free Electronics Recycling on July 28.
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 next event of 2018 taking place from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. July 28 on the township’s campus at 52700 Van Dyke Ave. A subsequent collections will take place October 27.
