If you are looking for a place to dump the debris from the weekend storms the city has a solution.

City crews have been out picking up debris since Saturday but they need help so the process can get finished faster.

"We’re asking residents to please if they have the opportunity and availability of a pick-up truck or anything to get the limbs, larger stuff down to our street garage at 1084 Central Avenue, we’ll be happy to accept it that way," said Public Service Director Mike Simms.

"It got used for it’s first time to it’s fullest Friday night. We’ve also been connected to and serving South Zanesville since the event and for most of the day on Sunday we were tied into the county line and helping to provide them water for a good part of their system as well."

Keep in mind, the county debris drop off is different than the city drop off. Central Avenue is open to city residents only.

Here are the locations to drop off debris from Muskingum County Emergency Managment Agency:

?Newark Road behind the old County Home
?Armco Bottoms off of Van Horn Avenue
?Muskingum County Fairgrounds near the Eppley Avenue entrance
?Boggs Road across from Perry Township Fire House
?EMA Lot at 2215 Adamsville Road
?U.S. 40 just west of Polk’s Scrap MetalO

Ohio Department of Transportation allowing tree and brush debris at the Old Five Mile Bridge Access Point -State Route 60

These sites are open to the public, villages, townships and businesses.
