Solid Waste Management Department

Welcome to the City of Durham Solid Waste Management Department. You will find links here to the solid waste services provided by the Department.

Please remember to place your cart at least 3 feet from any obstructions to ensure safe collection. With more people working from home, our crews are having challenges with parked cars, and placing carts too close to mailboxes and other carts continues to be an issue. Thank you.
