Spring Bagged Leaf Collection

April 20, 2020 - May 30, 2020 (Tentative)

Concord residents with curbside trash and recycling collection can participate in the City’s Spring Leaf Collection program. Leaves must be placed in biodegradable yard waste bags (available at local retailers) and/or rigid containers labeled "leaves" (no plastic bags). Leaves must be at the curb by 7:00 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 in the spring. Spring Leaf Collection will occur for six weeks in coordination with trash collection tentatively starting on Monday, April 20th and continuing through Saturday, May 30th. 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.

Bags and containers containing any unacceptable items will not be collected.
