The Orange County Landfill began operations in 1971 and currently accepts approximately 2,000 tons of waste per day. The landfill site encompasses 5,000 acres and accepts Class I (putrescible) waste, Class III (construction and demolition) waste, yard waste, and waste tires. In addition to the landfill, Orange County operates two transfer stations and 25 transfer trucks to facilitate garbage disposal for residents while also reducing road traffic.
Under Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs’ leadership, and in coordination with the mayors of the county municipalities, the County has engaged a consultant to conduct a comprehensive review of the County Solid Waste System. The review will identify cost efficiencies and evaluate reducing tipping fees at the landfill to benefit Orange County and its residents.
