DJ Root Recycling



For the past 10 years, the DJ Root Recycling Team has been picking up papers throughout Shiawassee County. Later cardboard was added to the recycling list. This provided a chance to make a recycling center and on-the-job training for Shiawassee Health & Wellness (SHW) consumers.
