Residential Service Improvements

We’ve rolled-out improvements!

Residential recycling and garbage collection in Concord is even better!

Are you part of a neighborhood organization or civic group and would like a speaker to give a presentation on recycling in Concord? Contact Mandy Smith-Thompson to request a City staff member at an upcoming meeting.

Beginning July 5, 2011, the City of Concord rolled-out improvements to residential solid waste services.   Please visit this page for the latest updates as we implement the new program:



Recycling is now collected every-other-week.  Residents have more recycling options and new black, wheeled carts for easier curbside placement.




New fully automated collection vehicles now pick up your green garbage carts every week.





 Place items that cannot fit inside the cart, such as bulky waste (furniture, tires, lawn mowers, etc.), appliances (white goods), and e-waste (anything with a circuit board, especially TVs and computers) by the curb on your collection day no later than 6am. 




Printable materials are available for you to share with friends, family, and neighbors.

Educational videos produced by Cannon School students are available.



 The City’s yard waste collection program continues with the same great service you currently receive.
