Thursday, March 26: Starting March 30, curbside collection for yard waste and bulky items are temporarily suspended to focus on garbage and recycling collection, which help to maintain the public health and safety of residents.
Beginning Monday, March 30, the City of Durham Solid Waste Management Department will only offer curbside collections for trash and recycling.
Curbside collections for yard waste and bulky items are temporarily suspended to enable the department to focus its resources on garbage and recycling collections, which helps to maintain the public health and safety of residents.
This temporary change is needed since yard waste and bulky items require larger crews where employees cannot maintain social distancing.
Customers are asked to stop placing yard waste carts and bulky items on their curb on March 30.
Yard Waste subscribers will not be billed for the time that their services are suspended.
