Operation No Perched Packages

Operation No Perched Packages


Don’t advertise your new gifts to criminals by putting electronics packaging and other boxes curbside for disposal! Year-round, but especially during the holiday season, residents should consider breaking down large cardboard boxes and transporting to a recycling center instead of setting packaging at the curb.

As part of its ‘No Perched Packages’ holiday campaign, the Durham Police Department (in partnership with City Solid Waste Management and Durham Parks and Recreation) is    encouraging residents to dispose of electronics boxes and    other recyclable packaging at designated disposal sites (below) Dec. 22, 2017  through January 5, 2018.                        

No Perched Packages Disposal Sites:

D1– Long Meadow Park

D2 - North Pointe  Shopping Center (far end)

D3 -Target – Chapel Hill Blvd. (side)

D4– Lowe’s - Fayetteville Rd. (side)
