Clean Shelby Days recycling starts Sat. in Fairland

By JOHN WALKER - jwalker@shelbynews.com

The fall version of Clean Shelby Days, an annual recycling program, is due to begin on Saturday in Fairland.

Each year, the Shelby County Recycling District holds the recycling events free of charge at locations throughout the county to make it convenient for residents to dispose of recycling materials.

Saturday’s event in Fairland is due to take place at the Town Hall, 105 S. Walnut St., starting at 8 a.m. and lasting until noon.

Most types of recyclable materials are accepted at Clean Shelby Days events, including paper and cardboard, plastics, glass bottles and jars, and aluminum and steel cans.

Electronic waste such as computers or TVs, and heavy household appliances are accepted as well. 

Items not accepted include any hazardous or flammable materials such as chemical solvents. Used motor oil, paint and paint products, and pressurized containers and propane cylinders also are not accepted.

The recycling district has a hazardous drop off site for those products at 1304 N. Michigan Road near the county highway garage, open from 7:30 a.m. to noon on Saturdays.

Also at Clean Shelby Days, auto and small truck tires are accepted, but large tires from tractors or big trucks are not. There is a limit of 10 tires per person.

In addition to the Fairland event on Saturday, there are upcoming Clean Shelby Days events scheduled at two other locations.

Flat Rock is to host the recycling program at its volunteer fire department, 2785 W. State Road 252, on Sept. 22.

Pleasant View is scheduled to host the program at the corner of Michigan and Walnut Streets on Sept. 29.

Times for the free Clean Shelby Days events at all locations are 8 a.m. to noon.

On Oct. 6, a free document shredding event is scheduled to take place outside the Recycling District office, 1600 E. State Road 44, from 8 a.m. to noon.
