Solid Waste Management

Spring/Fall Clean Up 

In lieu of Spring and Fall clean up 2 bulk items can be placed curb-side all year on your regular “garbage” collection day. Items can be placed the evening before garbage day or prior to 7:00am of garbage collection day, but not on your recycle collection week.

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 paper leaf or yard waste bags.

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.
