Loose leaf collection continues next week in Tuesday and Wednesday routes
Solid Waste’s annual loose leaf collection continues next week. This popular program provides each Concord resident three opportunities to have un-bagged leaves collected curbside, between October 24 and January 27. Bagged leaves are collected year-round on a weekly basis, on the normal garbage and recycling collection day. Customers on the TUESDAY and WEDNESDAY garbage collection routes must have leaves at the curb by 6 a.m. on Monday, October 31 for crews to collect them during the first collection cycle.

Smart Community program installation update
Since launching the program Smart Community metering technology program this summer, over 8,000 electric meters and 4,000 water meters have been installed to bring multiple benefits to customers. The upgraded metering technology works by installing a communications network. This, like any technology deployment, requires installing equipment and then checking and adjusting the system to optimize performance. During the deployment of this project, customers may see City staff members manually reading meters from time to time to make sure accurate data are collected, and bills are processed and mailed according to schedule. This is because the meter installation happens in a time window where the City does not need to read the meter for billing, but performance adjustments may continue until and through the end of the billing cycle. To learn more, click here to see the City's update posted on nextdoor.
