Reporting An Objectionable Odor

On July 1, 2021, Section 125.69, Florida Statutes, was amended to restrict Florida code inspectors from initiating investigations related to anonymous complaints. The amended statute is available for review at this link:

Pursuant to this legislation, unless you provide your name and home address, only complaints that pose imminent threat to public health, safety, or welfare or imminent destruction of habitat or sensitive resources will be investigated by Orange County inspectors. Anonymous complaints that do not pose an imminent hazard as described will not be investigated.

Please be aware that if you make a complaint that includes your name and address, that information will become a public record and available for review upon request.

Please complete the following form to report and describe an outdoor odor you find objectionable to the Orange County Environmental Protection Division.

If you think the source of the odor is the Orange County Landfill located in east Orange County at 5901 Young Pine Road, please use this other form:

If you are interested in finding out the status of your complaint, please call (407) 836-1468 to request an update.


May we contact you if we have questions about the information on this form? If so, please supply your email address and/or a phone number:
