Fall Yard Waste Drop-Off
The Service Department will resume yard waste drop off starting on September 13 through November 30. Residents may drop off their yard waste at the Service Department Monday through Friday from 7:30 am – 2:30 pm. Residents should follow the signs to the dumping area. Yard waste must be in biodegradable paper bags and only include grass clippings, leaves, garden debris and small twigs. No large brush will be permitted. This is for residents only. No contractors or landscapers will be permitted to drop off yard waste.
Curbside Leaf Pick-Up
On Monday, November 29, 2021, Concord Township will be conducting a leaf pick up service for residents. The goal is to complete the leaf pick-up on November 29th, however, if they have not gotten to your street by the end of the day, the vendor will resume pick-up the next day. Residents will be required to supply their own bio-degradable leaf bags. After the bags have been filled with leaves only, they should be placed at the curb where the vendor will pick them up. Only bagged leaves in bio-degradable bags will be picked up. No bulk leaves, piled leaves or leaves in plastic bags will be picked up. The collection will begin at 6:00 am the morning of November 29th. There will be no returns to pick up bags that were not at the curb when the collection begins.
The Service Department will provide the labor to install snow barricades for residents living in Concord Township at no charge. The barricade consists of an aluminum board, two steel posts, reflective numbers and hardware. The materials must be purchased from Concord Township at the cost of $50.00. Barricades absorb the impact of heavy snow being discharged by the snow plows. Please keep in mind that this barricade is not a guarantee that your mailbox will not be damaged during the course of the winter season. If you are interested in having the Service Department install a snow barricade, please fill out the application located on the top of our website under Forms and Applications and return it to Town Hall. This will be a one-time installation and all maintenance thereafter is the responsibility of the resident. There is a $15.00 charge for any removal or reinstallation of barricades. If you have more questions please call (440) 350-3225 for assistance.
