Concord Spring Leaf Collection

The City of Concord will be providing bagged leaf collection services in the spring for residents with curbside trash and recycling collection. Watch our video overview above and read full program details below, including specific information and collection days for this year’s program.

Spring Bagged Leaf Collection

April 24, 2023 - June 3, 2023

Concord residents with curbside trash and recycling collection can participate in the City’s Spring Leaf Collection program. Leaves must be placed in biodegradable yard waste bags (available at local retailers) or rigid containers labeled for leaves. Do not use plastic or trash bags. Leaves and yard ward waste cannot be disposed of within regular trash. State law prohibits leaves and yard waste from being disposed of in landfills or incinerators. 

Leaves must be at the curb by 7:00 a.m. on your scheduled trash collection day. Leaves raked loosely to the curb are only collected during Fall Leaf Collection. Only leaves that are bagged or contained in a rigid container will be collected in the spring. 

Spring Leaf Collection will occur for six weeks in coordination with trash collection, starting on Monday, April 24 and will continue through Saturday, June 3. The last week of collection will be delayed by one day with no trash or leaf collection on Monday, May 29 due to the Memorial Day holiday.

Drop-Off Leaves

Gelinas Excavation & Earth Materials Recycling Center

Residents can also bring their leaves to Gelinas Excavation & Earth Materials Recycling Center. Please call ahead to confirm specific drop-off times at (603) 545-4835 or visit their website for more information. For more information regarding hours, location, contact details, and regulations, please visit our Gelinas Excavation & Earth Materials Recycling Center page.

Drop-off is free for loads smaller than a non-commercial pick-up truck. Proof of residency is required. Residents will be required to empty contents when disposing of yard waste to confirm that loads are 100% free of any unacceptable materials. Any unacceptable materials found must be retrieved by the person dumping. Illegal dumping will be subject to fines and penalties. Gelinas Excavation reserves the right to reject any load. Any container, bag, or miscellaneous item used to transport leaves to the earth recycling center must be taken back with the resident. Brush, branches, and limbs can be dropped off separately for a nominal fee. Leaves collected for Spring Leaf Collection are taken to Gelinas Excavation & Earth Materials Recycling Center to be recycled into compost for reuse.
