Drop-Off Leaves
For those who do not have curbside trash and recycling collection, or who wish to take care of their own leaves, may bring their leaves to Gelinas Earth Materials Recycling Center, located near Fort Eddy Road. They are available for 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. Proof of residency is 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. 


Fall Leaf Collection

2014 Fall Leaf Collection
Fall Leaf Collection for the City of Concord is completed for the season. Highway and Utilities crews picked up a total of 1,505 loads (2,529 tons) of leaves this year, compared to last year’s 966 loads (1,516 tons)! Collection continued as weather permitted and allowed for an extended amount of time for crews to work. View our map to see all of the areas collected. 
 


In the fall, rake leaves un-bagged to the curb for our crews to vacuum them up. Crews typically only have time to collect high priority areas once. Please remember that only leaves will be picked up and any miscellaneous items (including branches, rocks, and brush) must be removed from leaves. Leaves are brought to several locations for composting after collection.
