Request a Recycle Bin

City hall recycles too! Green’s the word...The city has a successful recycling program.

Call in your request to the Solid Waste Division at 407-688-5089, available for your convenience, Monday through Thursday from 7:00am to 5:30pm. Recycle Bin requests can also be submitted to Request A Recycle Bin.

Recycle bins will be delivered within two business days from the request date. Recycle bins will be used for the accepted materials only. Please do not put yard waste or garbage in the bins.

Waste Pro of Florida, Inc. is the City of Sanford’s Solid Waste Collection and Disposal Hauler. Recyclables are collected once per week; scheduled day depends on service location.

The normal procedure for recycling is that two bins are delivered. In one of the bins please place newspapers, magazines and catalogs. In the other bin place plastic bottles (#1 through #7 – the numbers are on the bottom of the bottles), glass bottles and jars (clear, green and brown), aluminum cans and steel cans.

An unlimited amount of recyclable material may be placed curbside for collection in the city provided 14-gallon recycle bins. The hauler will leave behind all materials not accepted in the program with a tag indicating the reason why it was left behind.

Refuse and recycle service is mandatory for all residential properties. An average of 104 tons of recyclable materials is collected monthly from the City of Sanford residents and is recycled rather than disposed of in the landfill.

With the help of citizens like you all of us can help protect the environment and improve the quality of life we all share living on this planet. Thanks for participating in the City's Recycle Program.
