If you would like to help by cleaning up roadside litter in your area, please contact us at newtonclean@co.newton.ga.us or 770-784-2015 to request trashbags, gloves, and vests.  

If your family, neighborhood, church, scout, club, fraternity/sorority, school group, etc. would like to Adopt a Mile, please contact us.

Adopt a Mile Application 

Please help us spread the word about the importance of keeping our community clean!

  • Remind your family and friends to always dispose of trash properly.
  • Bag your trash securely so that it doesn't blow in the wind.
  • Cover loads in the back of your pickup truck with a tarp.
  • Report litter and illegal dumping.
  • Keep your home and work place free of litter.


Report Littering & Illegal Dumping

Call 911 if you witness anyone littering or dumping.  Many residents are hesitant to call 911, but doing so allows your complaint to be registered in the system and is the recommended and proper way to report.
