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.
We accept donations. Please drop off products on the west-end of the SHW building located at 1555 Industrial Drive in Owosso.
If you have a paper donation, you would like us to pick up, please call the DJ Root Recycling Center at (989) 723-0873.
To make a monetary donation, please hand deliver or mail to:
