Newberry to have Recycling Program

Through a grant from the Michigan Department of Environmental Quality (MDEQ), the Village of Newberry will be starting a recycling program. The kick-off date is Tuesday, June 26.

The grant includes recycling programs in Burt and Portage townships. Hiawatha Shores of Manistique will be handling the bins and transportation of items. Newberry’s bins will be located behind the old 41 Lumber buildings next to the village office.

The program is only open to village residents. When dropping off items to be recycled, residents are asked to go to the village office, located at 302 west McMillan Avenue, for proof of residency.

Examples of proof of residency include a driver’s license or utility bill showing your village address. Upon confirmation of village residency, residents can proceed to the recycling site. A village staff member will meet residents at the entrance of the fenced area to provide access to the bins.

Residents will be responsible for separating their recycling items and depositing them in the correct slots, which will be clearly labeled. At this point recycling will not be picked up at residents’ homes.

The program will be open every other Tuesday from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. unless the date falls on a holiday.

Items accepted are good, clean corrugated cardboard (excluding cardboard food containers), residential paper (newspapers, magazines and other household paper), #1 and #2 plastics, aluminum and metal.

Items that are not accepted are glass, toxic or hazardous waste, household and car batteries, tires and electronics.
