Some Orange County residents not seeing timely trash pickup

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Some people in Orange County said they’re frustrated over their trash not being picked up when it’s supposed to be.


Some residents said they haven’t had any problems, while others said they will go an entire week without their trash getting picked up. Others say it’s just delayed by a day.
