Leaf & Grass Collection Programs
Fall Leaf Collection

Place your leaves unbagged curbside as soon as
Fall Leaf Pick-upyou are done raking and our crews will come by once to pick them up. Although the city will be doing leaf collection for several weeks, we only have time to hit each location only once during this period. Please only place leaves curbside. We will not pick up any branches, brush, or other debris. Check back in the fall for an online map that allows you to follow the trucks through town and plan your yard clean-up accordingly. This map will be updated only through the previous work day. 

Check the calendar for dates to see when the city's General Services Department will begin the annual fall leaf collection. Crews will continue as long as weather permits. 

Drop-Off Leaves

The Gelinas Earth Materials Recycling Center, located near Fort Eddy Road, is available to City of Concord residents or commercial establishments to drop-off leaves and grass clippings. Brush, branches, and limbs can be dropped off separately for a nominal fee during their open season (typically spring through fall). Proof of residency will be required. Loads must be 100% free of any unacceptable materials. Any unacceptable materials dumped will be retrieved by person(s) dumping. Gelinas Excavation reserves the right to reject any load. Illegal dumping will be subject to fines and penalties. Residents may be required to empty contents of bags when disposing of yard waste.
