Electronics Collection Drive Coming Soon!

The City of Newman and Newman Township are hosting a FREE Electronics Collection Drive on April 15th from 9:00 a.m. - 12:00 p.m., or until the dumpsters are full, whichever comes first.  This event is open to city and township residents of Newman.  A water bill or photo ID, with current address, is needed to show you reside within the city or township limits.  A limit of 3 electronic items per household will be accepted.  The event will take place in the overflow parking lot, southwest of the Newman Community Center.  A friendly reminder, please remove sharp items, like blades, from electric knives, needles from sewing machines, or anything related.  We will not be accepting large items, such as appliances, at this event.  A separate event will be hosted in which those items are accepted.
