Solid Waste Delays and Missed Collection

Seminole County Solid Waste and its haulers are experiencing trained staffing shortages, causing atypical collection delays for Unincorporated customers. Solid Waste customer service staff are in constant communication with haulers to ensure refuse is collected as soon as possible. 

What You Can Do:

  • Ensure garbage, yardwaste and recycling containers are placed curbside no later than 6 a.m. on your designated collection day.
  • If haulers have not picked up your garbage, yardwaste or recycling by 8 p.m., please put the containers back at the curbside on the day following your missed collection.
  • Be sure to report missed collection by emailing Please include your address.
