Durham County in North Carolina is receiving a grant worth $3.3 million to build a new solid waste drop-off facility and improve recycling programs.

The grant comes via the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law, passed by Congress in 2021. The money will be used to renovate the County’s Redwood Convenience Center in northeast Durham.

Chrissie Koroivui, Durham County Solid Waste Manager, explains that the new drop-off site will have more options for residents to dispose of their materials that either be recycled or reused.

"We'll be able to host both e-waste recycling collection events and household hazardous waste events," Koroivui said. "We'll also going to include a swap shop right in the center of everything, so we'll be able to encourage people to use it and keep items out of the landfill."

Construction will begin next year, and the new convenience center is scheduled to open in 2025.
