CONCORD – Due to impacts from COVID-19, the City of Concord is suspending curbside mattress collection effective Monday, March 30, 2020 until further notice. The City encourages residents to keep mattresses inside their homes until the suspension is lifted; however, if the mattress needs to be disposed of immediately, there are two options available to residents:

  • Charlotte Motor Speedway Landfill (owned and operated by Republic Services) at 5105 Morehead Road, Concord NC.  With proof of City of Concord residency, a fee of $2 per ton for residential waste applies.  Please call 704-782-2004 for more information.
  • Cabarrus County Landfill at 4441 Irish Potato Road, Concord NC.  Please contact the Landfill at 704-920-2950 or 704-920-3209 for operating hours and other information.  Fees do apply, call 704-920-3209 or visit cabarruscounty.us/resources/residential-waste for more information.

If additional changes in Solid Waste services or scheduling are needed, the City will communicate those changes as promptly as possible. The public is encouraged to visit concordnc.gov/whatsmyday or download the CARTology mobile app to sign up for service alerts and other solid waste notifications.

Concord Solid Waste Services thanks the community for continued patience and partnership as we work to maintain essential services.
