Street Cleaning activities are part of the Street Maintenance Division. There are defined sweeping routes that are completed on a regular rotation. Additionally, special sweeping requests submitted by residents are addressed in a timely manner. Other services include the removal of dead animals, the cleaning of Bus Stops, and clearing of litter on city streets. All of these services are performed when within the city limit and city right of way. Bulky waste pickups (large items such as furniture) need to be requested through the Solid Waste Department.
To submit a Street Cleaning request, please contact DurhamOneCall at 919-560-1200
For questions concerning particular streets, the Powell Bill (PDF) has a listing of all city maintained streets.
