When weather is bad but roads are passable, collection will occur as scheduled, but residents are encouraged to hold materials until the following week if possible, in order to minimize the number of roadside obstacles that may interfere with plowing.

Severe Snow Storm

In the event of a severe snow storm or snow emergency, where roads are not drive able and Waste Management is unable to travel, collection will be cancelled that day and Trash & Recycling will be collected on Saturday instead. Just the route on the day of the storm will be affected; there will be no delay in collection on other days that week, unless subscribers are notified otherwise.

Should there be a delay in collection, it will be indicated on a voicemail recording at 978-318-3240. Subscribers can also reach Concord Public Works at this number for updates during business hours.
Collection delays are also typically posted under Community News.
