The DJ Root Recycling Center has been recycling paper and cardboard in Shiawassee County for over a decade! This provides an opportunity to make a recycling center and on-the-job training for Shiawassee Health & Wellness (SHW) consumers.
Beginning July 6, 2020, we will begin accepting donations of:
Please drop off products (please review acceptable products to the right) on the west-end of the SHW building located at 1555 Industrial Drive in Owosso.
We request that donations are separated upon drop-off at the recycling center in order to decrease the need for handling of potentially contaminated materials.
The DJ Root Recycling Center offers services for paper shredding and recycling cardboard. If you have a business, we can pick up your materials by using a secure, locked recycling container.
For over a decade, the DJ Root Recycling Center has helped more than 300 businesses and families become green. With the generous support of Shiawassee County community members, we have been able to recycle over 1 million pounds, which is over 8,500 trees!
