Unincorporated Durham County Residents
Durham County operates four Solid Waste Convenience Sites that offer drop-off service for recycling and the disposal of residential trash, white goods, and yard waste. Residents must display the blue 2019-20 Solid Waste Decal in order to use these services. Renters can request a decal from their landlord.
If you have lost your decal or have additional questions, contact the Durham County Tax Office at 919-560-0300. The Solid Waste Fee is $158.81.
The Convenience Sites do not accept commercial waste or construction and demolition waste.
Bulky Item loads are limited to 1 dump per week. Big items such as furniture and cabinets should be broken down BEFORE arriving at the site.
No dual wheeled vehicles or trailers.
Trailers may not be longer than 8 feet with side rails no higher than 4 feet.
Site Attendants may limit yard waste loads in times of high activity in order to preserve space for all customers.
City of Durham Residents
To use the Convenience Sites, residents who live within the City of Durham may purchase a Solid Waste Decal from the Durham County Tax Office. Call 919-560-0300 for more information.
