Orange County’s new Automated Curbside Collection Program will begin on January 1, 2016. Among the changes, which include once-a-week collections, residents will also see a change in the way they dispose of their garbage and recyclables.
On Monday, October 19, residents will begin receiving their county-issued, 95-gallon roll carts to be used to collect their household garbage and recyclables. Delivery of the carts will continue through mid-December.
Orange County Commissioners, (listed below), will help to make a memorable event by participating in the first day of cart delivery. Commissioners will be wearing safety vests, and will help deliver/assemble the carts in selected neighborhoods in their districts.
