    The City will schedule an additional collection of yard waste on Saturday, September 7. Bundling IS required for large tree limbs and branches and cannot be longer than four feet in length. Smaller items such as leaves, plants, twigs, etc. need to be bagged.


    Residents who are in need of special pick-ups for large items (NOT including yard waste) can call (407) 571-8607 or email solidwaste@altamonte.org to request an estimate for a special pick-up (minimum charge is $70). Once payment is made, we will schedule the pick-up. Items must be placed curbside.


    Do NOT place any sandbags on the street or curb for collection. Residents are urged to store sandbags in a dry location for the duration of the hurricane season. To safely dispose of sandbags, homeowners can spread the sand on their lawns or landscape beds and either reuse the bag or place it in the garbage.
