Materials Management and Manufacturing in Newark (2014)

Recycling Newark Rutgers Bloustein Voorhees Fellows Civic Engagement Studio

The Spring 2014 community development studio explored Newark’s manufacturing waste stream and potential opportunities for reusing durable manufacturing discards and shipping materials to generate new jobs. The City of Newark wants to support its manufacturing sector in becoming more resource efficient and create jobs while diverting waste from landfills. Along with arts and culture, materials reuse can be utilized as a strategy to generate new businesses and jobs. This vision complements Newark’s vision to advance social, economic, and environmental health as priorities in the city’s 2013 Sustainability Action Plan.
