Residents in unincorporated Orange County will begin receiving their new 95-gallon roll carts, which will be used to collect their household garbage and recycling when the county’s new automated curbside collection program goes into effect on January 1. Cart distribution for the over 205,000 households will continue throughout the county until mid-December. Along with the roll carts, residents will receive a “welcome kit” that includes a brochure with guidelines for using the roll carts and answers to frequently asked questions. The kit will also include a magnet for residents to write down their new collection days.
Cart distribution will begin each morning between 7 a.m. and 8 a.m., Monday through Saturday. Residents do not need to be home at the time of delivery. Once the roll carts have been dropped off, residents are asked to store them in a safe place until they are permitted for use beginning January 1.
