Severe storms on June 30, 2014 created significant amounts of debris due to storm damage. The City of Newton will assist residents with storm clean-up by picking up limbs, branches, and tree trunks from residential homes.
Eligible items for pick up include tree limbs, branches, and tree trunks. Limbs must be 8 feet in length or less. Wet or damaged furniture and other domestic items will not be collected.
To have debris from your yard collected, place it on the curb by the evening of Tuesday, July 8, 2014. Place limbs and branches parallel to the road in a clear area away from mailboxes, water valves, etc.
Additionally, if Newton residents haul their own debris to the Newton Sanitary Landfill, the City of Newton will pay the landfill fee for branches and debris for residents through July 15, 2014. Proof of Newton residency will be required at the landfill.
