Trash Disposal and Recycling

There is a dumpster in each area of Raintree, and one location for recyclable materials. Do NOT leave trash or large items around the dumpster, and only place recyclable items in the recycling area. Refer to the list in this article to locate which dumpster you should use.

Each dumpster gate is marked with a letter. Identify your address below to locate which dumpster you should use. The recycling area is marked with the letter D. If you are unsure which building you live in, refer to the Raintree Phase Map.

Fines will be issued if trash and large items are not handled properly.

The following items can be recycled in this area:

  • Newspaper
  • Magazines
  • Paper items
  • Plastic containers
  • Cardboard (must be broken down to fit in bin)

Although Raintree only accepts the above recyclable items, there are many other ways to recycle household waste to keep unwanted trash out of the landfill.

Plastic bags: Plastic bags can be recycled at Publix. There is a drop-off location at the entrance.

Batteries/Electronics/Tech Trash/Small Appliances: Best Buy accepts lots of tech trash from appliances to old phone cords. Visit their website for more information.

Paint/Other Hazardous Waste: The City of Orlando offers several drop-off locations for hazardous waste. Household hazardous waste is defined as any product that includes any of the following words on its label: Flammable, Poison, Warning, Corrosive, Explosive, Danger, Pesticide, Caustic or Acid.

Prescription Drugs: Drugs are actually considered hazardous waste. Do not flush them down the toilet or throw them away. Drop off any unwanted prescription drugs at the nearest Orange Country Sheriff’s station.

Unwanted Furniture/Mattresses: Consider donating unwanted furniture to charities like The Salvation Army or Goodwill. About 90-95% of a mattress can be recycled. Mustard Seed of Central Florida will take your old mattress and recycle it for you!

Large Appliances: These items must be transported to a landfill. If you are replacing an appliance, more than likely your installer will remove it. However, if you find yourself trying to get rid of a fridge that will not fit inside the dumpster, you must call the City of Orlando Solid Waste Department at 407-246-2314 to schedule a pick-up.

Clothing: Don’t put clothing into the dumpster. Clothing is highly recyclable. Donate to a charity or for more convenience, textiles can be dropped in one of the orange bins operated by ATRS, American Textile Recycling Service. Not all donation bins are alike! This group only recycles clothing and unwanted textiles.
