Township Pick Up Days

Concord Township organizes a Lawn Debris Pick Up day in the spring and a
Leaf Pick Up day in the fall.  Both pick up days require residents to sign up at the preceding township recycling day.  Please check the Township Activities listing for a schedule of all dates.

Please – DO NOT rake leaves or lawn debris into the street!!!
(Yard waste in the street creates a traffic hazard and clogs sewer drains.)
