DURHAM WASTE REDUCTION & RECYCLING POLICIES FOR CURBSIDE COLLECTION
At curbside, on the right-hand side of the road as the hauler drives along. (Some streets are picked up on only one side. Please refer to the pickup schedule.)
Trash should be put out by 7:00 a.m. on the day it is to be picked up (see pickup schedule here).
Regular household waste (must be placed in waterproof and tagged containers) and household recyclables including corrugated cardboard; brown paper bags; newspapers; magazines; phone books; clear glass; aluminum cans; steel/tin type cans; mixed paper; paperboard; and #2 plastics. Recyclables must be placed in recycling containers, cardboard or plastic boxes.
Each bag or trash can containing regular household waste must be tagged. If no tag is attached the bag will not be picked up. Tags must not be taped to bags or cans. Recyclables do not require tags.
Maximum weight is 25 pounds per bag or can. Maximum size of cans is 32 gallons. If a bag or can exceeds the weight limit, or the can exceeds the size limit, it will not be picked up. There is no limit to the number of tagged bags put out by a household. The reasonable person standard will be used with regard to household recycling.
Each household is entitled to 26 free tags as of the first Monday after Town Meeting (Town Meeting is always held the first Saturday in April). New property owners are entitled to a prorated amount of tags, one for every two weeks remaining until the next April. Tags for rental units are limited to 26, regardless of tenant changes. Additional tags can be purchased for $3 each at the Town Office.
