Sign up for Commercial Food Waste Collection

Do you run a business that frequently disposes food waste?

The City of Orlando's Commercial Food Waste Collection Program gives your business the option to recycle pre and post-consumer food waste. The food waste collected is converted into energy, diverting it from local landfills. Some other benefits of this program are:

  • Reducing your monthly solid waste bill
  • Reducing dumpster and compactor odor
  • Reaching sustainability-minded customers
  • Building employee engagement and retention
  • Billed to your OUC account
  • No contract

Step 2.An initial in-person meeting will be scheduled

We will contact you about an initial in-person meeting at your location to learn more about your operations, answer questions and perform a site assessment.

Step 3.Schedule a staff training

Training for how to easily integrate the food waste program into your routine is key for successful participation. We will schedule this training with the business point of contact (and all relevant staff when possible). We highly recommend appointing a composting champion in the company to keep the program running smoothly.

Step 4.Receive your food waste carts

You will receive your carts based on the initial site assessment and amount of food waste produced at your business. Cart collection days may be scheduled up to three times a week.

Step 5.Schedule any follow ups as needed

If needed, follow up meetings can be arranged with the city for additional training or company refresher.
