The City of Concord’s Spring Leaf Collection will begin on Monday, April 20, 2020. Concord residents with curbside trash and recycling collection can participate by placing leaves in biodegradable yard waste bags (available at local retailers) or rigid containers labeled "leaves" (no plastic bags). Leaves must be at the curb by 7 a.m. on your scheduled trash collection day. Leaves raked loosely to the curb are only collected during Fall Leaf Collection.
Only leaves that are bagged or contained in a rigid container will be collected.
Spring leaf collection will continue for six weeks in coordination with trash collection through Saturday, May 30, 2020. The last week of collection will be delayed by one day with no trash or leaf collection on Monday, May 25th due to the Memorial Day holiday. Unacceptable items, including plastic bags, will not be collected.
Residents can also bring leaves to Earth Materials Recycling Center. Drop-off is free with proof of residency if the load is smaller than a non-commercial pick-up truck. Residents will be required to empty contents at the facility to confirm that loads are 100% free of any unacceptable materials. Any container, bag, or miscellaneous item used to transport leaves to the earth recycling center must be taken back with the resident. Gelinas Excavation & Earth Materials Recycling Center’s hours are Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., with additional hours on Saturdays during leaf collection from April 18th through May 30th (with the exception of Memorial Day weekend when the facility will be closed for the holiday). Hours are weather dependent and are subject to change. Please call ahead to confirm specific drop-off times during the coronavirus pandemic at (603) 545-4835. or visit their website for more information.
