Beginning the first week of November, Waste Pro of Florida, Inc. will begin collecting Windermere’s recyclables with this wheeled recycling cart. Your recycling service day will continue to take place on Tuesday. Please set your old 18 gallon recycling bins curbside every Tuesday AM until they are collected.

Benefits: These new bins will increase recycling rates, which will decrease landfill usage. Your neighborhood will be clean...er and the chance of pests and rodent infestation will be reduced. Just roll your cart out to your curb every Monday evening. It’s that simple - no more sorting out paper, plastic and metals, it all goes together in this cart.

Accepted Recyclable Materials

Pasteboard (cereal & shoe boxes), empty paper towel and toilet tissue rolls, corrugated cardboard (PLEASE flatten before placing into cart!), phone books, magazines and catalogues, brown paper bags, office paper, newspaper and junk mail.
