New Year’s Day Collection WILL OCCUR on January 1, 2020
Curbside Collection WILL NOT Occur on Christmas Day, December 25, 2019
Orange County, Fla. – 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, Wednesday, December 25.
If Wednesday is a customer’s normal collection day, set out carts, yard waste and large items by 6 a.m. on Thursday, December 26.
After Wednesday’s holiday, curbside collection services will move forward by one day the remainder of the week, including Friday collection on Saturday, for unincorporated Orange County customers.
Tuesday, December 24, Christmas Eve Day, and New Year’s Day, Wednesday, January 1, 2020, are not holidays, 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.
Customers are encouraged to recycle holiday items like flattened cardboard and cards/envelopes in the blue lid recycling carts. Other items, like 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.
Live 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.
