Recycling Opportunites For Shelby County

Made Possible By Allied Waste, City Of Center, Farmers State Bank & Shelby Savings Bank

Share |

The Shelby County Chamber of Commerce Shelby Beautiful Clean Committee will conduct two recycling events on the Historic Downtown Center Square. The third annual Document Shred Day is presented by Allied Waste and sponsored by Farmers State Bank and Shelby Savings Bank. Unneeded sensitive documents will be accepted for secure disposal on Friday, January 23 from 11:30 a.m. until 2:30 p.m.

The City of Center is the presenting sponsor for Electronics Recycling Day which will be held on Saturday, January 24, 2015 from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. in a drive-through fashion on the north side of the inner Center Square.

Acceptable electronic items include: computers and monitors, televisions, printers, DVD and CD players, microwave ovens, copiers and fax machines, telephones, cell phones and chargers, GPS Units, PDA and Tablets, video and camera equipment and cables and power cords. Those disposing of computers may do so with the confidence that their personal information will remain secure since these machines are completely demolished leaving no means of retrieving any data.

Unacceptable items include: NO large household appliances such as refrigerators and dishwashers, NO lawn equipment or anything containing gasoline or liquids, NO heaters and NO smoke detectors. The Shelby County Commissioners Court has made arrangements to accommodate unaccepted items at the Pct. 1 facility at 1306 San Augustine Street in Center (2/10 mile north of the intersection of Hwy 96 and Old San Augustine Road) during the recycling event.

A more detailed list of what can and cannot be accepted by the recyclers may be found at These services are provided free to the public as a service of generous presenters and sponsors and the Shelby Beautiful Clean Committee of the Shelby County Chamber of Commerce, chaired by Jodi Fountain.
