Unincorporated Roadside Recycling Collection
Durham County provides roadside collection of recyclables for its unincorporated residents. If you live within the city limits of Durham, please visit the City of Durham Solid Waste website for more information about their roadside recycling program or call 560-1200.
Recycling collection for your home occurs every other week. Use this document to determine your pick up day and Schedule (A or B).
On your collection day, bins should be placed on the curb no later than 7 a.m from October-April, and no later than 6 a.m. from May- September.
If your recycling bin was not collected (and it was placed on the curb by the appropriate time), please call 919-560-0433 by 9 a.m. on the following business day.
The County continues to transition from 18 gallon bins to carts. If your home is in a cart area, you are permitted to have one (1) 96 gallon roll cart. At this time there is no provision to allow multiple carts at one address. You may not use any container other than the provided 96 gallon roll cart for recycling.
If your home is in a bin area, you may be issued 2 18-gallon bins at no cost. These customers may also use a similar shaped container, as long as it is the same size (18 gallon) or smaller.

Roadside Garbage Collection
Durham County Government does not provide roadside garbage collection. County residents located within the unincorporated portions of the County may set up roadside garbage collection with a solid waste hauler. Durham County does not endorse any solid waste hauler, but has provided a list of solid waste hauler contact information below for citizen convenience. You must contact these haulers directly for service rates and collection information. Additional haulers may be found in your local phone directory.
