Fall & Spring Leaf Collection



Fall Leaf Collection 




In the fall, Concord residents can participate in the City of Concord's Fall Leaf Collection. Participating residents must rake their leaves to the curb (un-bagged) for Concord General Services' Highway and Utilities crews to vacuum up. Crews typically only have time to collect once, focusing on high priority residential streets and drainage areas. Only leaves will be picked up and any miscellaneous items (including branches, rocks, and brush) will not be collected. Leaves are brought to several locations for composting after collection.

2017 Fall Leaf Collection
Fall Leaf Collection is tentatively scheduled to begin on Monday, October 30, 2017 and continue through December 8, 2017 if weather permits. Residents should have leaves ready to the curb by the start of the program to not miss collection. Be prepared for crews to only come by once since there is a limited time frame for crews to collect leaves throughout the city. Three crews will be collecting leaves throughout the city: one will start at the Bow town line on South Street and work north, the second crew will start on Elm Street in Penacook and work south, and the third crew will start on Manchester Street and work north on the east side of the river. It cannot be predicted when crews will reach certain areas due to unpredictable leaf volumes and weather conditions. Once collection starts, our Fall Leaf Collection Map will become available to display where crews have already collected from the previous day. Zoom in to the color-coded crew routes to see the dates of completed collection. The map helps to forecast the direction of collection, but the course can change and residents should prepare their leaves for the start of the program. 

Veteran's Day Collection
The only predetermined area scheduled for Fall Leaf Collection is the area around Concord High School for Veteran’s Day (this year observed on Friday, November 10, 2017). This area is scheduled for collection on Veteran’s Day each year in coordination with the holiday school closure to minimize public disturbance and in consideration of public safety. Please avoid parking next to leaf piles in this area on this day to not block equipment from safely collecting leaves. Crews will resume collection in their designated areas after the holiday. View the map below of scheduled areas for Veteran's Day.

Drop-Off Leaves
Concord residents can dispose of their leaves for free at Earth Materials Recycling Center if the load is smaller than a non-commercial pick-up truck. 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. Residents will be required to empty contents of bags when disposing of yard waste. Any unacceptable materials found must be retrieved by person(s) dumping. Gelinas Excavation reserves the right to reject any load. Illegal dumping will be subject to fines and penalties.
