Changes to an Orlando city code could soon change — requiring more than 10,000 such properties from downtown high rises to Lake Nona businesses to install recycling receptacles over the next four years, drastically reducing garbage flowing to the landfill.

The City Council will hear the new policy on first reading Monday, and if approved, would vote again to adopt it next month. “The biggest thing is when the four years go by everybody who lives and works in the city will have the opportunity to recycle, unless it cannot legally be done on their property,” Orlando Solid Waste Division Manager Mike Carroll said.
