Television Collection

Television collection is offered by appointment only and is not considered a bulky item. A maximum of 3, 32 inch (screen size) TVs or larger should be placed at the curb by 6 a.m. the morning of your garbage collection. No other electronics are collected at the curb. All other electronics must be taken to the Recycling Center at the transfer station. Call Durham One Call at 919-560-1200 for information or to schedule an appointment.

  • Does not contain any broken parts or glass
  • Positioned at least 2 feet from any other item, garbage cart, or parked vehicle that could obstruct collection
  • Positioned no more than 3 feet from the curb
  • Screen size measures 32 inches
    • A TV is measured diagonally based on its screen size so a 32 inch television means that the screen is 32 inches when measured from the bottom left corner to the top right corner; cabinetry/wooden bases are not included in screen size
