Solid Waste Services:  Meeting the challenges for waste collection and recycling every day.


Due to impacts from COVID-19 concerns, the City of Concord will suspend all curbside collection of mattresses 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:

1) 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 (for services normally provided by Waste Pro; no yard waste or amounts over 4 cubic yards of construction debris).  Please call 704-262-6371 for more information.

2) Cabarrus County Landfill at 4441 Irish Potato Road, Concord NC.  Please contact the Landfill at 704-920-2950 or 704-920-3209 or visit for more operating hours and other 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 or download the CARTology mobile app to sign up for service alers and other solid waste notifications.  



The City of Concord contracts residential garbage, recycling, and bulky waste collection.  Beginning July 1, 2019, a Solid Waste fee in the amount of $2.24 will be added to each customer's monthly utility bill.  The fee will cover increased costs to the Solid Waste program associated with the City's collection contract and the processing of recyclables.
