Blue Roll Cart is for recycling! Green Roll Cart is for waste. (This color arrangement does seem opposite to what I’d have expected.)
If you need roll carts delivered to your home, please send an email to Solid.Waste@ocfl.net (include your name, street address, and contact information) or call the Solid Waste Hotline at 407-836-6601. Under this new automated garbage collection program, garbage, recycling, and yard waste are each picked up once per week. You can access your collection schedule electronically here.
Residents who need to dispose of large items that will not fit in the roll cart must send an email to Solid.Waste@ocfl.net (include your name, street address, contact information, and the item(s) that you want collected) or call the Solid Waste Hotline at 407-836-6601 to arrange for pickup.
- Large items include furniture, appliances, mattresses, automobile tires (limit 4), and rear-projection televisions.
- Limit large items to three cubic yards (about one small pickup truckload) per household per week.
- Large items should be placed at the curb no earlier than 6:00 p.m. the night before and no later than 6:00 a.m. on your scheduled collection day.
With regard to placement of your roll carts:
- Place your roll carts at the curb no earlier than 6:00 p.m. the night before and no later than 6:00 a.m. on collection day. Put away emptied carts on the same day.
- There should be about three feet of clearance around each cart placed curbside in order for the trucks to use the mechanical arm.
- The carts should be placed away from your mailbox, parked cars, and low-hanging tree limbs.
- The handles should be facing your house, and the arrows on the lid should be pointed toward the street.
- Disabled residents who are unable to take their roll carts to the curb may apply to the Solid Waste Division for rear-door service. The driver will collect the carts at an accessible location close to the house, empty them, and then return the carts to the same location. Qualified residents will receive rear-door service at no charge.
- Residents who are not disabled may arrange for rear-door service through their franchise hauler for an additional fee of $13.50 per month. The cost for service may be adjusted annually by the county and must be paid by the customer directly to the franchise hauler.
Finally, Yard Waste
- Use your own garbage cans or plastic bags for collection.
- Bundle limbs, palm frands, and similar items into lengths of three feet or less and securely tie them with string or twine.
- Each can, bag, or bundle must weigh less than 60 pounds. Tree stumps should be cut in lengths of three feet or less and each piece must weigh less than 60 pounds.
- Collection is limited to three cubic yards per week.
- Place all yard waste within three feet of the curb.
- Do not mix yard waste with garbage or recyclables.
Did you know there is a Roll-Back Fee if your roll cart linger by the curb after 6:00 a.m. of the next day? Check out the video below:
