The Johnston Public Works Department began cleaning up debris left from the storm event that occurred on July 14, 2020. The properties included in the curbside collection are areas east of Merle Hay Road and the westside of Merle Hay Road.
Public Works crews have been working all week aggressively to pick up the debris within the designated areas, but due to the amount of debris on the curb, the collection will continue into the week of July 27, 2020.
To assist residents most impacted by the storm, the city will provide a curbside collection of trees and branches damaged.
The residential properties included in the curbside collection are:
East of Merle Hay Road
- Merle Hay Road west to NW Beaver Drive east
- NW 55th Avenue on the south to NW 78th Avenue on the north. This includes the residential neighborhoods that are north and east of NW Beaver Drive up to NW 78th Avenue.
Westside of Merle Hay Road
- Merle Hay Road east to Pioneer Parkway west
- Pioneer Parkway on the south to NW 62nd Avenue on the north
All material must be placed on the curb by 6:00 a.m. and meet the following guidelines:
- Branches and trees cannot exceed 18-inches in diameter or six feet in length.
- To avoid damage, please do not place storm debris next to fire hydrants, street signs, or mailboxes.
As always, Johnston residents may dispose of yard waste through the Metro Waste Authority Compost-It! Program. Compost is collected on the regular garbage day by placing the material in a yard waste bag or bundling the materials in bundles, not exceeding 18-inches in diameter or four feet in length, and placing a yard waste sticker on the bundle.
