Walk-up service allows the resident to have sanitation services at the home, rather than at the curb. Our staff will walk up to the residence and take the containers out to the street, empty and return them. It is available for a $35.70 monthly fee.
For residents who are physically unable to move their containers to the curb and have no able-bodied person living in the residence, the additional cost over the standard monthly fee may be waived. To qualify, complete section 1 and 2 on the application form and have your physician complete the physician’s statement and return it to the City of Newton.
When you sign up for walk-up service, a sanitation representative will visit your residence to help you determine a suitable collection point. Containers must be at the front line of the home and visible from the street. Collectors will not go through gates or into backyards, garages or other out buildings.
