Garbage and Recycling Regulations:
The new automated trucks can only collect trash in the carts provided by the City of Apopka.
When left at the curb for collection, carts should be placed at least three feet from obstacles such as mailboxes, garages, utility boxes and poles, as well as trees and shrubs.
All household trash should be bagged and placed inside the cart to keep the cart clean and prevent blowing when emptied.
Break down boxes and place them in the cart.
Do not overload the cart or place items on top of the cart.
Place the cart at the curb with the handle and the wheels facing the house.
Carts may be placed curbside between the hours of 5:00 p.m. the night before the scheduled day of collection and 7:00 a.m. on the day of collection.
Carts must be removed from the curb by 7:00 p.m. of the same collection day. Carts left on the curb the morning after the scheduled pickup day may result in a $20.00 roll back fee.
Do not put hazardous waste, such as cleaning materials, oil, paint, pesticides, or medical waste in the cart.
Do not put yard waste in your trash or recycling cart.
