The city of Concord’s spring leaf collection began Monday and will continue through June 3.
Concord residents with curbside trash and recycling collection can place an unlimited amount of leaves and grass clippings curbside by 7 a.m. on their trash collection day for pickup during the six-week program.
Residents participating in spring leaf collection must place leaves in biodegradable yard waste bags or labeled rigid containers.
Concord residents who do not have curbside trash and recycling collection, or who may have additional leaves after collection ends, may bring their leaves to Earth Materials Recycling Center for free (with proof of residency) if the load is smaller than a non-commercial pick-up truck. Dropping off leaves at Earth Materials Recycling Center does not require the use of any specific container since all contents are required to be emptied on site. Any container, bag or miscellaneous item used to transport leaves to the facility must be taken back with the user.
Earth Materials Recycling Center’s hours are Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., and 8 a.m. to noon on Saturdays during spring leaf collection. (The center will be closed on Memorial Day weekend).
Hours are weather dependent and are subject to change; please call ahead to confirm specific drop-off times at 545-4835.
