— Durham residents are being asked to place their garbage carts on the curb the night before their normal pick-up day.

Due to excessive summer heat, the city is adjusting its residential solid waste, yard waste and recycling collection schedules. Crews will be arriving at least one hour earlier.

The changes will last through through mid-September.
