Oviedo Solid Waste Survey

Over 950 residents took the time to take the survey and The City of Oviedo would like to thank everyone for sharing their preference.

The Survey listed four alternate collection preferences developed by a specialized consultant with the goal of finding the optimum desired cost vs level of service. 

WHAT ARE THE SUGGESTED OPTIONS?

Option 1 is the status quo and would keep the current level of service for City Residential Garbage and Recycling Customers. Garbage collection and single-stream recycling collection would still occur weekly using the existing carts. The estimated monthly cost of option 1 is $23.00 to $27.00.

Option 2 proposes to keep a single-stream recycling collection and weekly garbage collection in the existing carts. However, single-stream recycling would move to every other week pickup. The estimated monthly cost of option 2 is $21.00 to $25.00.

Option 3 would keep weekly garbage collection in place with the same container and convert to dual-stream recycling in two separate carts. The existing recycling cart would be used for fiber, and the City would provide a new, third cart for containers. The fiber recycling cart and the container recycling cart would be collected on alternating weeks. The estimated monthly cost of option 3 is $18.50 to $20.50. 

Option 4 would keep weekly garbage collection in place with the same container and convert to dual stream recycling and utilize the existing recycling cart to contain fiber and add a new bin for containers. Fiber and containers would be collected separately and occur every other week. This option would cost an estimated $16.50 to $19.50 per month.
