Leaf Collection

The Town of Truro offers an annual Leaf Collection Program in the Fall of each year. It begins as soon as the leaves begin to fall and continues until the snow arrives. We ask that all leaves are placed at the curbside of your property and are in standard-size recycle or garbage bags. Two people will not be able to lift any bags larger than that from your curbside into the back of the truck.

If you have any questions or require any more information please contact the Town of Truro Engineering and Public Works Department at (902) 895-4243.
