Earth Day E-Waste Event A Success!

More than 5 tons of electronic waste was collected to be properly recycled at a free E-Waste Collection Event to mark Earth Day in the Ironbound District. The event, presented in partnership by the City of Newark, the Ironbound Business Improvement District (IBID), Panasonic, Covanta and Urban Renewal Corp. at Peter Francisco Park, made it convenient and easy for local businesses and residents to recycle electronics like old TVs, PCs and laptops, printers, small household appliances, phones and other e-waste. Additional e-waste was collected from diverse community partners in Newark including Gallery Aferro, WBGO Radio, Gateway Center businesses and more. NJPAC provided information about upcoming performances and held a raffle for tickets. NJ Transit also shared information about the event with its passengers traveling through Newark Penn Station.
