The City of Johnston will follow the following guidelines to assist residents to cleanup storm damaged items from the weather event that occurred June 30 - July 1.
Storm damaged items can include:
Items not accepted include:
- Hazardous Waste
- Paints and oils
Drop-off locations between 7:00 a.m. to 7:00 p.m.
Beginning Monday, July 2, the City will place roll off containers at Public Works, located at 6400 NW Beaver Drive and the west Fire Station, located at 10225 NW 62nd Avenue. Due to limited resources, the City strongly encourages residents to use the roll off containers versus curbside pickup. The roll off containers will NOT accept furniture, appliances, hazardous waste or yard debris. Residents may place storm damaged items including carpet and drywall in the containers anytime between July 2 through July 16.
Garbage collection will follow normal procedures on Monday, July 2 and Tuesday, July 3. All garbage must be placed inside the regular garbage containers to be collected. If you have additional trash (that does not fit into the container) you may place it in a garbage bag or box with a $1.00 sticker attached. Stickers can be purchased at Johnston City Hall and locations around the metro. Those locations can be found by visiting Waste Management's website.
During the regular garbage collection on Monday, July 9 and Tuesday, July 10, residents may place storm damaged items out with their regular garbage for curbside collection at no additional charge (no $1.00 stickers will be required).
The special collection and roll off containers are for STORM DAMAGED ITEMS ONLY. To dispose of vegetative debris (trees, branches, etc.) follow the normal procedures for bagging or bundling yard waste.
