Beginning tomorrow morning (Tuesday October 1), Advanced Disposal begins its contract with Osceola County to start collecting residential solid waste and recycling in Osceola County.

Advanced Disposal will provide curbside garbage and recycling, yard, bulk waste, and white goods collection services.

Residents should have received new carts, one for trash with a beige lid and one for recycling with a blue lid. Postcard mailers with information on their new service days were also sent, as scheduled service days may have changed to improve operating efficiencies and service.

If residents did not see the postcard, they can visit,  enter their home address, and see their service schedule.

The new service includes once a week automated garbage and recycling collection, once a week yard waste and once a week bulk collection, two free additional household and recyclable collections a year at resident’s request, and capped fees for additional requested services beyond that.

Tuesday also marks the start of Osceola County’s new Score 4 Recycling Program. The county will accept cardboard, paper, plastic, and metal items for recycling — so don’t put these things in your blue bin: glass, plastic bags, tangled wires (i.e. old Christmas lights), food waste, batteries, or sharp items.

Advanced Disposal is working with the county to help achieve local and state waste collection and recycling goals.

In a press release, Advanced Disposal said it is building a new, 10,500 square foot operations facility at 3501 Pug Mill Road,in Kissimmee (near the Clay Street/Old Tampa Highway/Hoagland Boulevard intersection) that will employ more than 75 workers.

“We look forward to the residents seeing our new trucks, meeting our dedicated team members, and building a strong, relationship with the community,” said Ken Dillingham, District Manager, West Florida for Advanced Disposal.
