Special Notice
New Garbage/Recycling Services effective October 1st

Effective October 1st, 2013, Waste Pro of Florida will begin services all residential and commercial properties within the City of Maitland.  Residents will see no change in collection days. 

Starting the week of September 23rd, residents will be receiving new green garbage carts and new blue recycling carts.  The new blue recycling cart can hold 64 gallons and will replace the current dual bin system with a single stream cart.  Single stream means that residents no longer have to separate their recyclables, although containers must still be clean and boxes broken down.  More items are included in the list of accepted recyclables, and recyclable items include:  all paper products (clean and dry), aluminum cans and foil, steel/tin cans, all plastics (except Styrofoam and film bags), glass bottles and jars, and aseptic and gable top containers (milk and juice cartons).   Because the cart has a non-removable, hinged lid, recyclables will stay clean and dry, ensuring items stay out of the landfill!

 

With the new solid waste program comes a new disposal facility.  The City has entered into an interlocal agreement with the Seminole County Solid Waste Management Division, which will provide residents with access to the residential household hazardous waste collection center.  Starting on October 1st, residents can drop off their household hazardous waste at the Seminole County Central Transfer Station at 1950 State Route 419 in Longwood.  The Central Transfer Station is open Monday through Saturday from 7:30 am - 5:30 pm. Residents with large quantities of household hazardous waste should contact Seminole County in advance of delivering the materials to the collection center.  Residents can simply bring their Florida’s driver’s license or identification card as proof of residency, check in at the front desk and follow the signs for the household waste drop off collection center.  Some common household hazardous waste items include the following:

 

Anti-Freeze

Paints

Automobile Batteries

Poisons

Compact Fluorescent Lights

Pool Chemicals

Computer Components

Propane Tanks

Fluorescent Light Tubes

Rechargeable Batteries

Gasoline and Cans (Up to 5 gallons)

Solvents

Glues

Televisions

Insecticides

Thermostats

Lawn Chemicals

Thermometers

Mercury-Containing Devices

Used Oil

 

Items that are not accepted include dioxins, medications, radioactive material, explosives and biologically active material. 

The program will include a new system for the pick-up of bulk waste.  The twice yearly “clean up” weeks will be replaced with weekly bulk pick up collection for residential households.  Those days will be posted on the City’s website after September 30th.  No more stacking items in your garage waiting for November or May to roll around.  Residents will be able to place bulk items, such as furniture, appliances, lawn equipment, furnaces, and bicycles at the curb for collection on a weekly basis for no additional charge. 

Finally, there will be no change in the current collection days for garbage, recycling or yard waste.  For additional information, contact the Utility Billing division at (407) 539-6265 or by e-mail at utilities@itsmymaitland.com.
