A specially designated spot has been created for Newton County residents to get rid of much of the debris left in the wake of Wednesday night's tornado and severe storms.
Newton County Solid Waste Management will have a storm debris center on Henderson Mill Road open from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m. daily through Thursday. The center will take yard waste but no metal or concrete.
All storm debris should be taken to this center. There is no actual street address but it is marked with a sign. Going north on Ga. Highway 36, residents should turn right on Henderson Mill Road and roughly 5.5 miles down they will see the center on the left. Resident must show their identification with proof of a Newton County address to dispose of waste.
Wood, trees, limbs, stumps and the like will be accepted. Stumps must not be any larger than eight inches in diameter and logs should be no longer than four feet.
There will be an attendant at the site to help residents with the debris.
