Truro, NSW — The town of Truro continues its cleanup efforts after post-rainforest storm Fiona.
Roadside collection of tree and bush debris has begun and will continue over the next three weeks until equipment becomes available.
Important – Collecting Debris
Miller Waste Systems will resume collecting wood and brush debris from residential areas in town next week.
Secure debris so that it does not interfere with pedestrians or traffic in the wind or rain.

Crews must make only one pass through each street, and residents must pile trees behind curbs and sidewalks and brush away debris.
Property owners are asked not to block sidewalks or streets.
Only material that can be easily reached from the street by hand or a small machine is removed, the town said.
The crew does not enter private property, driveways or backyards.
Materials cannot be put in plastic bags and the crew does not cut down trees.
Depending on the type of equipment used for cleaning, traffic restrictions may be required for safety in some locations.
The collection schedule follows normal solid waste collection routes. However, due to the overwhelming amount of material, it would be difficult to provide an exact schedule, a town official said.
Residents are encouraged to bring wood and bush debris to the old landfill at 745 Yonge Street or the Colchester Balefill Facility, if possible.
Tipping fees are waived until November 30th.
