The City of Concord provides bagged leaf collection in the spring for residents with curbside trash and recycling collection. 

Spring Bagged Leaf Collection

April 22, 2019 - June 1, 2019

Spring Leaf Collection has ended for the 2019 season. Collection started on April 22nd and continued for six weeks through June 1st in coordination with curbside trash collection. Leaves were required to be placed in biodegradable yard waste bags (available at local retailers) and/or rigid containers labeled "leaves" (no plastic bags). Leaves had to be at the curb by 7:00 a.m. on your scheduled trash collection day to not miss collection. Only leaves that were bagged or contained in a rigid container were collected. Leaves raked loosely to the curb are only collected during Fall Leaf Collection. 

Bags and containers containing any unacceptable items were not collected.

Drop-Off Leaves

Residents can bring any remaining leaves to Gelinas Excavation & Earth Materials Recycling Center. Drop-off is free if the load is smaller than a non-commercial pick-up truck. Proof of residency is required. Residents will be required to empty contents when disposing of yard waste to confirm that loads are 100% free of any unacceptable materials. Any unacceptable materials found must be retrieved by the person dumping. Illegal dumping will be subject to fines and penalties. Gelinas Excavation reserves the right to reject any load. Any container, bag, or miscellaneous item used to transport leaves to the earth recycling center must be taken back with the resident. Brush, branches, and limbs can be dropped off separately for a nominal fee. Leaves collected for Spring Leaf Collection are taken to Gelinas Excavation & Earth Materials Recycling Center to be recycled into compost for reuse.
