Reminder: Automated Collection WILL Occur on Independence Day, July 4

Orange County, FL – The Orange County Utilities Solid Waste Division reminds unincorporated Orange County residential customers that, as part of the new Automated Curbside Collection Program that started Jan. 1, garbage, recycling and yard waste will be collected on Independence Day, Monday, July 4.

Since Monday is a normal collection day, customers should set out their roll carts and yard waste, as usual, by 6 a.m.

Under the new program, the only holidays are Thanksgiving and Christmas (which falls on a Sunday this year). Therefore, the only collection day that will be disrupted due to a holiday in 2016 is Thanksgiving Day, Thursday, Nov. 24. More information about the Thanksgiving Day collection schedule will be sent out to customers and the media in the fall.

The Orange County Utilities Solid Waste Hotline at 407-836-6601 and email Solid.Waste@ocfl.net will resume business on Tuesday, July 5. Customers can visit online at www.ocfl.net/GreenClean2016.
