Call 704-920-5555 to schedule collection of appliances, bulky items, and e-waste
The City of Concord requires that all residents call our Customer CARE Center (704-920-5555) a minimum of two business days in advance of your regular garbage pick up day to schedule the curbside collection of accepted bulky items, old appliances, scrap metal, used tires, and e-waste. Although the City of Concord has encouraged residents to schedule the collection of these items for some time, scheduling became mandatory in 2011.
