Spring Leaf Collection

Spring Leaf Collection begins Monday, April 23, 2018 and will continue for six weeks through June 2, 2017. Concord residents with curbside trash and recycling collection can place an unlimited amount of leaves and grass clippings curbside by 7:00 a.m. on their trash collection day for collection during the program. Leaves should not be raked freely to the curb as this collection method is only during Fall Leaf Collection. Leaves must be in biodegradable yard waste bags or labeled rigid containers. Unacceptable items, including plastic bags, will not be accepted. Concord residents may also bring their leaves to Gelinas Excavation & Earth Recycling Center for free (with proof of residency) if the load is smaller than a non-commercial pick-up truck. Visit for full program information.

Hydrant Flushing

Hydrant flushing for the season has been rescheduled to begin from Monday, April 16, 2018 to Monday, April 23, 2018 due to weather conditions. Areas scheduled are still the same, just delayed by one week. Flushing will continue for the next several weeks as part of required routine maintenance to remove any sediment from the City's water distribution system to maintain water quality, clarity, and pressure. Concord water customers may experience low water pressure and discoloration when flushing occurs in their area. Residents should avoid doing laundry when flushing is scheduled.

Concord General Services Divisions

Routine maintenance and inspections are performed on City vehicles and equipment to keep the City's fleet safe and in serviceable condition.

City owned and public community facilities are maintained on a regular basis to keep areas clean, safe, and in operable condition. Some of the public properties maintained include the Municipal Complex, community centers, community swimming pools, parking garages, and the Douglas N. Everett Arena (municipal arena also managed within this division). 

Street maintenance and repair are significant responsibilities of our Highways and Utilities Division. Potholes, paving, existing signs, sidewalks, water distribution, sewer collection, snow plowing operations, dead animal removal, fall leaf collection, and the Sustainable Tree Program are all responsibilities of the Highways and Utilities Division. Street lights are maintained by Unitil and traffic lights are maintained by Concord Fire Department. 

The City of Concord contracts trash and recycling services with Casella. The City uses a pay-as-you-throw program for curbside trash collection to encourage the practice of reducing waste and increasing recycling. Recycling is single-stream and does not need to be sorted for curbside collection. 

Concord water is sourced from Penacook Lake, treated at our Water Treatment Plant, and distributed throughout the city to provide drinking water that exceeds EPA standards. Residents connected to the City's water distribution system pay for these services through their utility bill.

The City's sewer collection system collects and delivers all wastewater to our wastewater treatment facilities. Wastewater is processed to protect the community's health and environment. Water and biosolids are recovered through this process to provide sustainable practices. Residents connected to the City's sewer system pay for these services through their utility bill.
