Monday’s severe storms created significant amounts of debris, and the City of Newton will assist residents with storm clean-up by picking up limbs, branches and tree trunks from residential homes.
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 a yard collected, place it on the curb by the evening of Tuesday, July 8. 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. Proof of Newton residency will be required at the landfill.
