Regular trash pickup with possible delays on Memorial Day in Orange County

Orange County Utilities will continue its regular curbside trash collection on Monday, but residents are being warned of possible delays in pickups as a result of the holiday.

According to county officials, garbage, recycling, yard waste, and large items will still be collected for unincorporated county customers on Memorial Day, May 30, during regular hours. For residents who regularly get their waste picked up on Mondays, regular collection rules are still in place.

County officials are asking customers to be mindful of how items like fireworks, block party leftovers, and yard waste are disposed. Fireworks are not recyclable and should be soaked in water and cooled before being disposed. Additionally, yard waste items should be cut down to size, bundled appropriately, and follow weight restrictions.

For information on how to properly dispose of items from a cookout, spring cleaning, or other holiday activities, visit Orange County’s What Goes Where tool.

If collection schedules are delayed due to the amount of waste set out, Orange County Utilities asks customers to leave their carts and materials at the curb, as haulers may collect at irregular times or days to correct any missed pickups.

The Orange County Utilities solid waste hotline and email will be closed Monday, May 30 and will resume regular business the following day.
