Advanced Disposal begins providing waste & recycling collection services to Osceola residents on Tuesday, Oct. 1

On Tuesday, Oct. 1, Advanced Disposal will begin the collection of residential solid waste and recycling in Osceola County.

Advanced Disposal will service residential customers by providing curbside garbage and recycling, yard, bulk waste, and white goods collection services. Advanced Disposal’s new collection service will include:

•Once a week automated garbage and recycling collection.

•Once a week yard waste and once a week bulk collection (up to 3 cubic yards).

•Two free additional household and recyclable collections a year (at resident’s request).

•Capped fees for additional services that residents can request.

 Residents should have received one trash cart (beige lid), one recycling cart (blue lid), and a postcard mailer with information on their new service days.  Scheduled service day(s) may change to improve operating efficiencies and service. If residents did not see the postcard, they can also visit www.OsceolaEnvironmental.com to see their service schedule, as well as detailed trash and recycling guidelines.

 “Advanced Disposal is bringing technology to make Osceola County’s curbside collection more efficient and to provide a level of customer service that our residents have really been wanting,” said Osceola County Chairwoman Cheryl Grieb. “We always work to provide residents with solutions that balance the best available service with reasonable cost.”

 Osceola County also is launching their Score 4 Recycling Program on Oct. 1. The county will accept cardboard, paper, plastic, and metal items for recycling.  The items that are not acceptable include glass, plastic bags of any kind, tanglers (wires, holiday lights, etc.), food waste, batteries, or sharps (needles, syringes, etc.). Advanced Disposal will be working closely with community leaders and partners to help achieve local and state waste collection and recycling goals. For more details on the program, please visit www.OsceolaEnvironmental.com.   

“We are excited about partnering with Osceola County to provide non-hazardous, solid waste and recycling collection services for the residents in the county.  In addition, we are proud to establish roots here by building a new, 10,500 square foot operations facility at 3501 Pug Mill Road, Kissimmee, FL 34741 and hiring more than 75 local employees.  We look forward to the residents seeing our new trucks, meeting our dedicated team members, and building a strong, relationship with the community,” stated Ken Dillingham, district manager, West Florida for Advanced Disposal.

Advanced Disposal is working closely with Osceola County to ensure that the transition to the new services is as seamless as possible.
