Curbside Collection for Unincorporated Orange County Delayed Additional Day

Update: The Orange County Landfill and the Porter Transfer Station are under normal operations, open 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Residential yard waste fees will be waived until 5 p.m. on Sept. 4.

Update: No solid waste/recycling pick up will resume again on Thurs, Sept. 5.  If your garbage/recycling collection was regularly scheduled on Monday, it will be picked up on Thursday. Curbside collection schedule is three days behind and will go into the weekend since the storm projection delayed service.

Orange County, Fla. – Garbage, recycling, large items and yard waste will not be collected for residents of unincorporated Orange County on Wednesday, September 4, due to Hurricane Dorian. This will be the third day of no service including Monday, September 2, and Tuesday, September 3.

Once the storm has passed and the emergency notifications have been lifted, the collection schedule will be adjusted by the number of days service was suspended, including Saturday and Sunday, to catch up on service.

Customers whose regular day is Monday should place garbage, recycling, large items and yard waste at the curb only when conditions are safe for collection on Thursday, September 5.

Other days of service will follow until the normal service schedule resumes, which will likely be the week of September 16. Garbage collection will be the priority. Yard waste and storm debris may be delayed depending the severity of the storm.

Regular setout guidelines will apply once service returns. Visit www.ocfl.net/UtilitiesStormInfo.

Also, the Orange County Landfill, 5901 Young Pine Road, and Porter Transfer Station, 1326 Good Homes Road, both will close at 5 p.m. on Monday, September 2, and will remain closed until conditions are safe. Information: www.ocfl.net/WasteSites.

In addition, the Orange County Utilities Solid Waste Hotline at 407-836-6601 and email Solid.Waste@ocfl.net will resume when staff members return to the call center.
