Holiday Schedule

The Solid Waste Division observes three holidays a year. New Years Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day. The Transfer Station will be closed on these days, and there will be no curbside collection. 

Special Pickups

We collect large items placed at the curb once a week. Charges apply; $12 for the first two cubic yards and $6.50 for each additional cubic yard. **Special Pick-Ups over an estimated 8 (eight) cubic yards will be charged by current tipping rate according to weight. Charges will be applied to your utility bill as a "special pickup." You may call 407-957-7289 if you do not know your special pickup day. Place your large items at the curb prior to 7 a.m. on your scheduled pickup day.

Placement of Carts

Please place carts curbside on your scheduled day by 7 a.m. and no earlier than 6 p.m. the evening before. Remember to roll back your cart by the next morning; rollback charges are $5 each time. Please place cart at least 3 feet from mailboxes and other objects that would block our refuse truck. Items placed beside (outside) the refuse cart are $1 each and the charge will be applied to the customer's utility bill.
