Television Collection

Television Collection is by request only. Residents can put in a request online or by calling Durham One Call at 919-560-1200.

A maximum of 3, 32 inch (screen size) TVs or larger should be placed at the curb by 6 a.m. the morning of your garbage collection. No other electronics are collected at the curb. All other electronics must be taken to the Recycling Center at the transfer station.

  • Does not contain any broken parts or glass
  • Positioned at least 2 feet from any other item, garbage cart, or parked vehicle that could obstruct collection
  • Positioned no more than 3 feet from the curb
  • Screen size measures 32 inches
    • A TV is measured diagonally based on its screen size so a 32 inch television means that the screen is 32 inches when measured from the bottom left corner to the top right corner; cabinetry/wooden bases are not included in screen size
