Winners Announced in Annual Ironbound Anti-Litter Poster Contest

A dream inspired Victoria Villalba’s concept for her submission to the Ironbound Business Improvement District’s 14th Annual Anti-Litter Poster Contest. His concern about seeing people trip over litter on a local sidewalk motivated Miguel Carrera’s contest entry.

Their hard work and creativity helped Hawkins Street School win first place for the fifth to eighth grade and the Wilson Avenue School win first place for the first to fourth grade, respectively.

Earth Day E-Waste Collection Event in Newark’s Ironbound a Success

An estimated 30,000 pounds 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.

That’s why this service is so important to the Ironbound and the City of Newark.”
