Helpful tips for yard waste collection
Concord residents enjoy weekly curbside collection of yard waste at no extra cost. Residents are asked to do their part by preparing yard waste for collection the right way. Grass clippings, leaves, and tree or shrubbery trimmings less than 12-inches in length must be placed in untied, clear plastic or biodegradable paper bags weighing less than 35 pounds. No dark or opaque plastic bags are permitted. As an alternative, personal containers (recommend 42 gallon max. size) with handles, clearly marked “Yard Waste Only” and weighing less than 35 pounds when full may be used. Visit to learn more.
