City of Durham to Collect Winter Storm Debris: All Residential Solid Waste Customers Can Arrange One Free Curbside Pick-Up; Pick-Up Must Be Scheduled by Friday, March 14

Debris from storms can be processed into mulch!
DURHAM, N.C. – Due to last week’s winter storm, which left a significant amount of storm debris throughout the community, the City of Durham’s Solid Waste Management Department will be collecting storm debris at no charge for non-yard waste customers who receive household garbage collection. 

To schedule one free curbside storm debris collection, customers should contact Durham One Call at (919) 560-1200 by Friday, March 14, 2014, at 3 p.m. Storm debris should be placed at the curb by 7 a.m. on a residents’ normal household garbage collection day. Debris longer than six feet should be cut in half and not placed into bags. 

Residential customers may also drop off storm debris at the City’s Waste Disposal and Recycling Center at 2115 E. Club Blvd., Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., at no charge until March 14. Residents are asked to arrive at least 30 minutes before closing. Strom debris delivered after March 14 will be subject to the usual disposal fees. Regular yard waste customers do not have to contact Durham One Call to receive their normal collection service. Additional questions regarding this one-time free service should be directed to Durham One Call at (919) 560-1200.
