The Orange County Utilities Solid Waste Division reminds unincorporated Orange County residential customers that garbage, recycling, yard waste and large items will not be collected on Christmas Day, Tuesday, December 25.
If Tuesday is a customer’s normal collection day, set out carts, yard waste and large items by 6 a.m. Wednesday, December 26.
After Tuesday’s holiday, curbside collection services have been moved forward by one day the remainder of the week for unincorporated Orange County customers.
Monday, Christmas Eve Day, is not a holiday so regular collection services will be provided. As part of Orange County’s program, the only collection holidays are Thanksgiving and Christmas. However, crews work through Saturday during those two holiday weeks.
Regular service schedule will return the following week. Tuesday, January 1, 2019, is not a collection holiday and curbside service will occur on that day.
Customers are encouraged to recycle holiday items like flattened cardboard and cards/envelopes in the blue lid recycling carts. Other items like most wrapping paper, ribbons/bows and stringy light sets, belong in the green lid garbage roll carts. When in doubt, leave it out or check www.ocfl.net/recycles.
Wooden Christmas trees can be set out at the curb on yard waste collection day for recycling. Trees over six feet should be cut in half. Remove all ornaments, decorations and stands before placing at the curb. Artificial trees are not collected with yard waste.
The Orange County Utilities Solid Waste Hotline at 407-836-6601 and email Solid.Waste@ocfl.net will be closed Monday, December 24, and Tuesday, December 25, but will resume business on Wednesday, December 26. Customers can visit online at www.ocfl.net/GreenClean for more information.
Merry Christmas! REMINDER: Trash pickup will shift one day this week.
