Looking to recycle cardboard or glass from the holidays? Here’s where you can for free

SEMINOLE COUNTY, Fla. — For those looking to recycle cardboard or glass from the holidays, the Seminole County’s Solid Waste Management Division is providing this service for free at Red Bug Lake Park.


Seminole County Solid Waste said customers are encouraged to drop off their excess holiday recycling to prevent crime and alleviate curbside collection services.

“When left curbside, boxes from large items such as TVs can alert criminals to valuables inside a home,” Seminole County Solid Waste said.
