Both facilities may have to close as the storm approaches.
Regular yard waste curbside collection that follows set out guidelines is available for customers with scheduled Friday service. For set out guidelines visit: www.ocfl.net/UtilitiesStormInfo.
For customers whose designated day has passed, please secure any loose items or delay yard work until after the storm when service schedules resume. Residents who need items removed should make arrangements to haul the material away or pay someone to do it. Regularly scheduled collection services, with household garbage as the priority, will begin as soon as possible after the storm.
The curbside collection schedule for unincorporated Orange County may be suspended next week due to Dorian.
Updates will be issued, including collection schedule changes, as more information becomes available.
