Illegal dumping will be subject to fines and penalties. Residents will be required to empty contents of bags when disposing of yard waste. Gelinas Excavation reserves the right to reject any load.
Free Leaf Drop-Off
Concord and Penacook residents can drop off grass clippings and leaves without a charge if it is smaller than a non-commercial pick-up size with a license as proof of residency. This is for residential customers only. Any commercial vehicles, non-residents, other material, or larger loads will be charged. You will be asked to empty the bag or container you drop-off with to be sure that there are no restricted items in your drop-off. Residents do not have to purchase biodegradable yard waste bags for drop-off, containers can be used; whatever container used to hold grass clippings and leaves will need to be taken back with you.
Acceptable Drop-Off Materials & Items For Purchase
Gelinas Excavation & Earth Materials Recycling Center accepts and sells reprocessed earth materials. Acceptable items for drop-off include leaves, grass, brush, asphalt & sand fill, and concrete. Items available for purchase include loam, compost, gravel, mulch, granite, sand fill, woodchips, sand, and used brick and pavers. Materials purchased are not guaranteed to be free of debris since they are recycled earth materials.
