Curbside Collection Program

Concord’s curbside collection program is fee funded.  Tax dollars do not support the program. The Town contracts with Waste Management for residential trash & recycling collection. To receive weekly trash and recycling collection, residents can subscribe to the Town’s curbside collection program  at the Town House, 22 Monument Square, M-F 8:30-4:30 (summer hours may vary), or via mail by mailing in a subscription application.

Subscribers pay a semi-annual subscription fee and a disposal fee (Disposal Tags & Barrel Stickers).

Disposal tags and barrel stickers can be purchased at the Town House and retail establishments.
