Solid waste pick-up is provided Monday through Friday; two times a week based on the following:

  • Residences located on the east side of I-4, pick-up days are Tuesday and Friday.
  • Residences located on the west side of I-4, pick-up days are Monday and Thursday.

Recycling pick-up information, view the Recycling Schedule.

Spring Clean-Up
Spring clean-up is held once each year (around Easter). Materials collected are large household items like furniture and appliances. Spring clean-up is also a great time to plan your heavy tree trimming or pruning as there is no bundling or size restrictions. The following items will not be not collected at clean-up: large household renovation items, tires or other hazardous materials. During clean-up your materials should be placed curbside by 7 a.m. on your normal refuse days.

Please be sure to place debris at the curb and away from light poles, mailboxes, or trees. Yard Waste Wednesday collections will continue during clean-up. For spring clean-up dates, go to the Solid Waste Calendar.

Special Pick-Ups
Residents who find themselves in a situation where they cannot or do not wish to wait for spring clean-up for a large item pickup can call (407) 571-8607 or email Solid Waste to request an estimate for a special pick-up (minimum charge is $70). Office hours are Monday through Friday, 7:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Once payment is made, we will schedule the pick-up. Items must be placed curbside (between the curb and sidewalk).
