Just a quick note to remind you all Recyclers residing in Orange County of Florida: Orange County Utilities is offering residents the chance to safely dispose of household hazardous waste (HHW) and electronic waste free of charge on Saturday, April 18, 2015. Free of Charge! Many household products contain dangerous chemicals that require special handling. Incorrectly disposed of, these chemicals can be harmful to humans, animals, and the environment. To insure the correct handling of these items, Orange County Utilities holds 4 HHW community collection events annually and provides 2 permanent HHW collection facilities for the proper disposal of HHW and recycling of electronic waste. Please note the location and time for the collection event and permanent collections above.

Please also keep in mind that the yard waste collection is provided every Wednesday. Be sure to place your yard waste at the curb after 6:00 pm the night before or no later than 6:00 am on Wednesday.
