Solid Waste Collection Summer Schedule

Durham Announces Solid Waste Collection Summer Schedule


Earlier Collection June 9 through October 6

​DURHAM, N.C. — To help employees who work outside all day avoid the risk of heat-related illness and injury, the City of Durham’s Solid Waste Management Department will begin collecting solid waste, yard waste, recycling, and bulky items earlier each day this summer.

Starting Monday, June 9 through Monday, October 6, the department is asking residents to place their carts and bulky items on the curb the night before their normal pick-up day since work crews will start collections at 6 a.m. instead of 7 a.m.

Solid waste collectors will make every effort to complete their regular routes each day. However, during times of extreme temperatures, it may not be possible. If a pick-up is missed on a regular collection day, residents should leave their carts at the curb and contact Durham One Call at (919) 560-1200 to report the missed pick-up.
