Coffs council offers some storm clean-up helpWednesday February 27, 2013 - 13:08 EDT
The Coffs Harbour council has set-up green waste drop-off point after wild weather swept through the region over the weekend.
Winds reaching up to 100 km an hour brought down branches and trees that cut power, blocked roads and damaged houses.
Now residents are being encouraged to take their green waste to free drop off centres.
People with mixed loads will be turned away and green waste from private property will not be collected if it is left on footpaths or roads.
Two green waste centres will open for a week at the Woolgoolga Depot and the carpark at Phil Hawthorne Drive in Coffs Harbour starting on Friday.
