From the City of Winter Garden....

New list of acceptable recycling items

Please be more selective with the collection of items in your recycling bins/carts. 

Common contaminants are currently being placed in the recycling bins/carts - causing a delay normal pickup times and days when the City’s pickup crew sort the recycling items at the curb.

What you need to know

  • The City will not collect any recyclables in plastic bags. 
  • Place acceptable items directly in recycling bins/carts or in brown paper bags. 
  • Unacceptable items placed in the recycling bins/carts will be placed in the residents’ trash receptacle, if easily accessible, or adjacent to the recycling bins/carts. 
  • The City may be able to provide additional bins for residents, if needed.
