When your bear cart is delivered, Solid Waste staff will swap out your old City of Apopka garbage cart. However, if you wish to keep your old cart, a $60 one-time fee will be charged to your utility bill as well as a recurring monthly fee of $8 per month for having a second cart at your address.

No, bear carts need to remain at the address of the home they were first delivered to, even if you decide to move to another address that is within the City of Apopka Bear Management Area.
To best ensure that your trash gets picked up on your scheduled service day, please be sure that your bear cart is standing upright and facing the road.
Check the top latch on the inside of the lid of your bear cart. If it has a pin with a ring attached, gently remove the pin, which will allow your cart to lock when shut. If you are still experiencing issues with locking your bear cart, please call City of Apopka Public Services at (407) 703-1731.
