Why Are My Recyclables Not Being Picked Up?

Make sure you are only recycling acceptable materials. Acceptable recycling items include paper, metal, glass, cardboard, and plastic. Unacceptable items for recycling include plastic bags, Styrofoam, mirrors, batteries, light bulbs, bubble wrap, food scraps, and other items as listed in our detailed list of acceptable trash and recycling materials. Recyclables should be placed loosely in your recycle bin and not be contained inside of a plastic bag. If you are not using a recycle bin provided by the City of Concord, be sure to have your recycle bin labeled as recycling to ensure collection.
