The City of Orlando will begin switching to a new solid waste service schedule this May, one that halves garbage collection and doubles recycling pickups.

The news follows on the tail of a successful trial project in curated Orlando neighborhoods, that we wrote about previously, HERE.

The switch will take place over the next six months:

  • May- Northwest Orlando, including College Park
  • June- Southwest and southeast Orlando, including Lake Nona
  • August- The remaining pockets of town laying in-between

Following a City-wide roll-out, the program will still need to be voted on by City Council this summer, before being officially adopted.

For more information, reach out to the City Solid Waste Management Division at 407-246-2314.

  1. I can’t wait. There is hardly ever anything in my garbage but my recycling is always full and sometime overflowing.
