Concord/Penacook Leaf Pick-up 2018
Just a quick note to let you know that the city council voted unanimously to keep the current leaf pick up in the fall and added a two to three week additional bagged pickup.
So nothing changes regarding the city coming around and vacuuming up your leaves. What does change is the last two to three weeks of pickup. If your leaves have been vacuumed and more leaves have fallen from your trees (or your neighbors trees) you can bag them and they will also be picked up.
I want to point out that the recommendation from the Solid Waste Advisory Committee was to go to bagged pick up only. It is because so many in the city contacted their city councilors and testified at our meeting that the primary recommendation was not accepted by the council and the secondary hybrid suggestion (which is explained above) was approved.
Because of the difficulties the vacuuming program has experienced in the past, I was leaning towards supporting the bagged program. Because of the number of people who contacted me, you made me realize that it was important to maintain our current system for the fall leaf pick up. So thank you for taking the time to contact me. While what you have to say has always been important to me, it was good to see that the rest of the council also listened to their constituents
And as always you can contact me at:
