The Friday, September 20th event is for businesses, schools, farms and municipalities only. Registration is required and residents cannot attend. Cost will be determined by the vendor based on the type and amount of waste to be disposed of (up to 220 pounds). Drop off times will be scheduled by the vendor.

The Saturday,September 21st event is free for Orange County residents who provide proof of residency (driver’s license or utility bill with Orange County address). The Orange County Sheriff’s Office will be on site collecting unwanted over the counter and prescription medications. Businesses, schools, farms and municipalities must register for the Friday’s disposal and cannot attend the collection on Saturday.
