TEMPORARY RECYCLING PROCEDURAL CHANGE

Seminole County residents should sort recyclables before placing curbside. Seminole County Solid Waste generally offers curbside sorting, but for the safety of collection crews, asks customers to self-sort.

Tissues and paper towels should be placed with regular household garbage.

Fibers should be sorted together. This includes:

  • Pasteboard (i.e., cereal boxes, empty paper towel and toilet paper rolls, soda boxes, beer boxes, tissue boxes, gift boxes, pizza boxes and shoe boxes)
  • Brown paper grocery bags (no wax, no wet strength material, no liners)
  • Corrugated cardboard (flattened and cut down to fit inside the recycle bin)
  • Newspaper, supplements, magazines and catalogs
  • Box board, carrier stock, white and colored paper
  • Telephone Books

Co-mingled containers should be sorted together. This includes:

  • Plastic Containers #1-7 (#'s on bottom of containers) Remove all lids
  • Glass bottles and jars (clear, green and brown) Remove all lids
  • Aluminum cans
  • Steel cans and tin household containers, such as food cans

This does not include residents in the City of Oviedo or Lake Mary; Oviedo and Lake Mary as they are single stream.
