Information will be on our website at www.ocfl.net/debris and residents can call 3-1-1 as well. This map will be updated weekly on our website. Please note that debris pick-up is only for residents in unincorporated Orange County.
Household garbage, recycling and regular yard waste (three cubic yards – about the size of a small pickup truck) are continuing to be picked up by Solid Waste on regular scheduled days. Due to volume of yard waste, crews are running a few days behind, but are working extended hours and Saturday to catch up.
- Citizens should move their vegetative debris to the curb now for pick up by our debris contractors. Please separate vegetative debris (tree limbs, branches, shrubs) – all should NOT be bagged. If you have leaves, we ask that residents bag them and have them be picked up with yard waste. Debris pick-up cannot have anything in bags. DO NOT block fire hydrants, storm drains and mailboxes with debris.
- Do not mix garbage and construction debris with vegetative debris. Construction material such as fencing, shingles and lumber should be a separate pile and will be collected at a later date.
- Orange County is anticipating completing debris pick–up in eight weeks – however, there is not a definitive end date as of now and this is a fluid situation.
- We still have 11 debris sites open 7 days per week from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. We plan to continue to stay open and do not have a closing date yet.
- Any resident from Orange County (including from municipalities) can drop off at any of our 11 debris sites.
- So far, we have had 13,000 cubic yards of debris collected at our 11 debris drop-off sites.
- Orange County Public Works estimates that there will be 1.3 million cubic yards of debris pick-up. This number equates to filling Spaceship Earth at Epcot about 15 times (thank you to Steve Hudak at the Orlando Sentinel for this comparative information J)
- Also, please remind everyone to NOT put debris in the roadway (it can get into drainage) and sidewalk (children have to walk to school).
