Urban & Town Curbside (Weekly Collection)

Blue_CartResidents within the town limits of Hillsborough, Carrboro, and Chapel Hill (including the portion of Chapel Hill within Durham County) in single-family homes or duplexes qualify for weekly curbside collection of recycling in 95-gallon roll carts. 

Cart Recycling Reminders

  • Do not bag recycling in a plastic trash bag. Items must be loose inside cart.
  • Empty, flatten, cut or fold corrugated cardboard boxes so they fit loosely inside cart.
  • Items must fit loosely and the lid must be able to fully close.
  • Line up the front of the cart so it is flush along the curb.
  • No plastic bags, Styrofoam or garbage, please.
  • Only items inside the cart will be recycled; items on top or left on the ground will not be recycled.
  • Place cart with cart lid opening toward the street.
  • Place your cart at the curb with 3 feet clearance from cars, trees and other objects.

How do I get a replacement cart, or a repair? Contact our office if your cart is missing or it needs a repair. Cart replacement costs $60, however there is no charge for a one time replacement if the loss or damage is through no fault of the household. If resident would like to lease an additional cart they may do so for an annual fee of $60.
