Special Events

The City of Durham is waiving solid waste cart rental fees for all special events from now until June 30, 2022. We understand that COVID-19 hurt many businesses last year, and we want to encourage event coordinators to resume special events without experiencing additional costs as Durham attempts to open back up.  

Special events fees will be waived during this time; however, event hosts are still responsible for all carts in their possession. The event could be liable for cart repair or replacement costs if all carts are not kept in good condition and if any are missing.
