City of Concord NH
Concord Spring Leaf Collection Begins Monday, April 24
Concord residents with curbside trash collection can begin placing leaves at the curb starting Monday, April 24, for the return of the City of Concord’s Spring Leaf Collection.
All leaves must be in biodegradable yard waste bags or rigid containers labeled for leaves. In the spring, leaves must be bagged or contained for easy pick-up with trash collection. Leaves raked loosely to the curb are collected only in the fall.
Leaf collection will occur on a resident’s trash day and must be out by 7 a.m. Unacceptable materials will not be collected, including branches, brush, or plastic bags.
Leaf collection will continue for six weeks through Saturday, June 3. The last collection week will be delayed by one day, with no trash or leaf collection on Monday, May 29, for the Memorial Day holiday.
Residents can also bring leaves to Gelinas Excavation & Earth Materials Recycling Center at 10 Intervale Road, off of Fort Eddy Road, once they open for the season on April 17. Drop-off is free with proof of residency for loads smaller than a non-commercial pick-up truck. Residents are required to empty contents at the facility to confirm that loads are 100% free of any unacceptable materials. Bags are not required for drop-off. Any containers used for transporting leaves to the recycling center must return with the resident.
Gelinas Excavation & Earth Materials Recycling Center will be open Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday hours will be available from 8 a.m. to noon between April 22 and June 3, except on May 27 when the facility will be closed for Memorial Day weekend. Hours are weather dependent and are subject to change. Call the recycling center to confirm available drop-off times at (603) 545-4835.
