 Holiday and Closing Information for Durham County Convenience Sites: 

Due to the winter weather event, Durham County Department of General Services’ Solid Waste Division had to reschedule the safety upgrades planned for the Bahama and Redwood Convenience Sites.  As a reminder, each site will temporarily close for one and half days to allow for the installation of safety rails alongside the open top roll off containers. The upgrades will now take place on the following days:

•             Tuesday, January 24, 2017, Bahama Site will be closed and reopen on Wednesday, January 25, 2017 at 1 p.m.

•             Wednesday, January 25, 2017, Redwood Site will be closed and reopen on Thursday, January 26, 2017 at 1 p.m.

Sign up for our email list (link below)!  We send out updates as delays and closings happen.  Make sure to select your pick up route (A North of the Eno or B South of the Eno) to receive information about your collection.
