The City is pleased to announce that recycling collection has resumed!
Thank you for your patience as we rebuilt our solid waste and recycling team over the past few months. As we shared with you, we lost half of our heavy vehicle drivers and had to temporarily suspend recycling collection while we restaffed. Hiring was difficult, and the heat this past summer made it even more difficult.
This is the first time in more than 20 years that we have had to suspend recycling service. As a leader in environmental innovation, it was painful to interrupt this program. We heard from many of you about how important recycling is to you and your families.
We ask for your continued patience as we train our new staff. Should you experience any issues with your solid waste or recycling services, feel free to contact us at (407) 571-8607 or SolidWaste@altamonte.org. Please continue to follow the recycling guidelines as detailed on the City’s website www.Altamonte.org/Recycling.
This has not been an easy period for you, and we appreciate your understanding. Thank you again for your support and patience.
