Leaves and Yard Waste Collection

The city of Durham does not have a leaf vacuuming program. Residents who rake or blow leaves into the street are subject to a fine. Residents subscribing to the optional yard waste program may place up to 10 biodegradable paper bags at the curb for collection each week on their normal service day. The yard waste cart with a current sticker must be at the curb and filled before paper bags can be used. If a yard waste customer has more than 10 bags, the excess will be collected the following week or residents may call 650-4186 to schedule a bulky brush collection.
