Monday holidays never affect collection. When a major holiday falls on a Tuesday - Friday, that day’s collection and all remaining collections for the week will be delayed one day. Friday collection will occur on Saturday. If Veterans' Day falls on a Tuesday-Friday, there is no delay in pickup.
Inclement Weather Schedule
Snow – 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 / snow emergency, where roads are not driveable 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 News & Notices on the Town’s website. If you are not a subscriber to "News and Notices" please go to the Home Page of the website and click on the button: "Subscribe to News" to receive email alerts.
