The Clay County Public Services Office set up storm clean-up services for county residents who live in unincorporated (rural) areas of Clay County and do not qualify for city services.

The Clay County Highway Department will accept vegetative (organic) debris, including shrubs, palm fronds, tree trimmings, grass and leaves, twigs or cut up branches from 7 a.m. - 5 p.m. at the Highway Department located at 16616 NE 116th St. in Kearney.

Residents will need to check in at the Highway Office with your government issued ID to verify residency in unincorporated Clay County. From there they will be directed to the drop off location. No after-hours drop-offs will be accepted.

Dumping is not allowed, and the following items are not accepted:

● Construction & Demolition Debris – materials relating directly to construction or demolition of buildings, such as cement, dry-wall, glass, treated lumber, insulation, concrete blocks, etc.

● White Goods – appliances, including refrigerators, ranges, washing machines, clothes dryers, freezers, microwave ovens, air conditioners, etc.
