Thanksgiving Schedule for City of Concord
Friday, November 20, 2020

In observance of Thanksgiving, City of Concord offices will be closed on Thursday, November 26, and Friday, November 27.

Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday’s garbage, recycling, and bulky waste collection will operate on a normal schedule next week. However, Thursday and Friday customers will have a one-day delay, with Thursday’s items collected on Friday and Friday’s items collected on Saturday. Also, there will be no yard waste or loose-leaf collection next week.

 

Customers are reminded that all garbage, recycling, and bulky waste must be placed at the curb by 6:00 a.m. on their collection day. If items are set out after 6:00 a.m., they may not be located and miss collection. Customers should consider placing items at the curb after 5:00 p.m. the night before and can visit concordnc.gov/whatsmyday or download the CARTology mobile app to verify their collection schedule.

 

Rider Transit will not be in service on Thursday, November 26, resuming normal service on Friday, November 27.
