Durham officials change trash pick-up

Earlier collection effective until September 30
DURHAM, NC To combat the heat and its effect on employees, the City's Department of Solid Waste Management is adjusting its residential solid waste, yard waste and recycling collection schedules to begin earlier each day.

Effective immediately through September 30, the City is asking residents to place their carts on the curb the night before their normal pick up day since collection crews will be arriving at least one hour earlier than the regularly scheduled pick up time of 7 a.m.

While solid waste collectors will make every effort to complete their regular routes each day, if a pick-up is missed on a resident's regular collection day, they should leave their carts at the curb an extra day before contacting Durham One Call at (919) 560-1200 to report the missed pick-up.
