Newton, NC – Out of concern for public safety and in response to the ongoing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the City of Newton asks all sanitation customers to double bag any contaminated or potentially contaminated waste.

Sanitation customers are asked to place all bagged waste in their garbage bin on their regular collection day. Items left outside of bins will not be collected.

Recycling collection will continue to operate as usual; do not bag recyclables.

Thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation as we adjust our sanitation collection services.
