Have bulky waste? Call 704-920-5555 to schedule collection
To provide better and more efficient service, the City of Concord will collect bulky and electronic waste on customers' regularly scheduled garbage days. The City asks that all customers call in to schedule bulky and electronic waste collection a minimum of two business days before their regularly scheduled garbage collection.  For more information, please call our Customer Care Center at 704-920-5555.
 
Staying safe as we deliver services in winter weather
As the season of colder temperatures and winter weather approaches, so does the risk of unsafe road conditions. We want to remind everyone of the City policy for garbage and recycling collection if we experience unsafe road conditions due to adverse weather. The City of Concord’s goal is to provide reliable and cost-effective solid waste and recycling collection for City residents throughout the year. When adverse weather occurs that may impact or interrupt these services, every reasonable effort will be made to minimize the interruption and to resume collection service as soon as road conditions will allow. Visit the City Hall Blog for more information.
