24-Hour Recycling Drop-off Sites


Orange County operates four recycling drop-off locations that are free and available to residents and businesses 24 hours per day, 7 days per week for the collection of conventional single-stream recycling and corrugated cardboard only.


  • Never leave items on the ground or garbage in the recycling containers that constitutes illegal dumping and can result in a citation or fine. Residents can bring garbage and wide range of other materials for proper disposal, recycling and reuse to Solid Waste and Recycling Centers.
  • Never place plastic bags in any of the dumpsters at the recycling drop-off sites! If you use plastic bags to collect your recyclables please remove them and discard the bag elsewhere. Clean, dry plastic bags can be recycled at local grocery stores.
