Wawa in Kissimmee, Florida

The widely popular convenience store/gas station chain Wawa Inc., based out of Pennsylvania, has been steadily expanding along the southern east coast for years. The beloved chain is known for providing patrons with an improved and expanded convenience store experience. Wawa’s fresh fruit and salads, hand prepared sandwiches, and freshly brewed coffee have transformed many throughout the east coast into Wawa loyalists. In 2012, Wawa began a massive expansion effort into Florida. With a goal of opening at least 100 stores, they are well over half way to meeting it. Recently, Wawa celebrated the opening of their seventh location in the city of Kissimmee, Florida.

Sunshine Recycling of Orlando, FL serves businesses and commercial establishments with professional and custom-suited waste management systems. We offer a wide variety of dumpster and compacting options, recycling services, and regular hauling to appropriate facilities. Since the early stages of Wawa’s foray into Florida, Sunshine has been outfitting their convenience stores with the appropriate waste management systems. For the newest Wawa location in Kissimmee, Sunshine is providing a vertical compactor, a single-stream recycling container and hauling services several times each week.

The benefits of a vertical compactor include taking up less space, odor control, keeping out pests, preventing pilferage, and preventing unauthorized persons from throwing trash into the container. Sunshine is also providing a single-stream recycling container; these innovative recycling systems increase the convenience of recycling by allowing all recyclable material to be thrown into a single container and eliminating the need to pre-sort. The single-stream recycling container accepts most recyclable materials, including plastic, glass, cardboard, paper, aluminum, and more. Sunshine Recycling Inc. is passionate about encouraging residents and businesses in Florida to recycle. Sunshine offers specialized containers for this purpose, as well as hauling services to appropriate certified recycling facilities.

Floridians have embraced Wawa’s presence in the Sunshine State. As the chain continues expanding with additional locations in Florida, they will continue to trust our reliable team for waste management and recycling systems and services.

Roll-Offs for RaceTrac

Sunshine Recycling of Orlando is teaming up again with Commercial Construction Specialists (CSS) during the construction of a new 6,000 square foot RaceTrac petroleum gas station and convenience store on Sandlake Road in Orlando, Florida. For this project, Sunshine will provide 20 yard roll-off dumpsters, regular hauling and return services, as well as portable toilets for construction workers throughout the duration of the construction.

Recently, Sunshine Recycling worked with Commercial Construction Specialists (CSS) during the construction of a Dunkin’ Donuts in Minneola, Florida. Both parties are happy to be working together again for another commercial construction project in their mutual home base of Orlando. CSS is a full-service construction firm run by individuals who previously worked as commercial property owners and land developers. Their backgrounds and extensive experience allow them to focus on a customer-centered point-of-view, providing clients with personalized, high-quality design, project management and construction work. CSS is committed to safety throughout all of their projects. Their work is present throughout central Florida in the form of service stations, retail establishments, medical centers, schools, restaurants and more.

Sunshine Recycling of Orlando knows the value of reliable, regular hauling services, especially during large scale commercial construction projects. We work with clients to meet individual dumpster and hauling needs, with roll-off dumpsters ranging in size from 20 to 40 yards. Our team will haul away debris as frequently as necessary, ensuring excess refuse won’t accumulate. Allowing debris to pile up can quickly become unsightly and problematic, and we avoid this issue by recommending appropriately sized dumpsters for different projects and providing frequent, regular hauling services. During the RaceTrac gas station construction, we’ll be providing 20 yard dumpsters, a standard size for the majority of projects. These dumpsters can accommodate a large volume of waste, including wood, drywall, plaster, cardboard packaging and more.  The new RaceTrac station will soon be another successful project completed with the help of the committed team at Sunshine Recycling of Orlando.

Dumpsters for Dunkin’ Donuts


An exciting new project is underway in Minneola, Florida, just a short drive west of the metropolitan Orlando area. A new Dunkin’ Donuts is being constructed along Highway 27 under the Commercial Construction Specialists (CSS), with Sunshine Recycling providing dumpster and hauling services throughout the duration of the project.

Commercial Construction Specialists is a full-service construction firm that was founded by commercial property owners and land developers. With years of experience as customers, stepping into the role of contractor allows them to understand the wants and needs of their own clients more accurately. They are avidly committed to providing safety, quality and overall excellence in all of their construction projects, big or small. Their repertoire of projects range from retail, to restaurants, to medical institutions and more.

One of the newest projects CSS has in progress is the construction of a new Dunkin’ Donuts restaurant in Minneola, Florida. Located in a bustling retail and dining district, the breakfast establishment is expected to quickly gain popularity among local residents. Dunkin’ Donuts is known for providing fresh baked goods and coffee that is convenient and affordable. Ranked number one in coffee customer brand loyalty for eight years in a row, Dunkin’ Donuts attributes their success to the warm and welcoming environment in their restaurants, high-quality product offerings and ease of accessibility to their customers.

Minneola is a smaller town, but with adjacent highways, residents have easy access to several surrounding cities. This allows them to enjoy the perks of big-city living, and all the comforts of a country home.  Sunshine Recycling is excited to contribute to this new restaurant construction, providing 20-yard roll-off dumpsters for all bulky construction materials. Sunshine will also be providing portable toilets for the construction crew. Minneola residents look forward to being able to grab a fresh doughnut and a hot cup of coffee during their daily commute, while running errands, or just while out and about.

Culver’s is Comin’ to Town

orlando dumpster rental

We are currently providing our roll-off dumpsters, hauling services and portable toilets to the construction site of a new Culver’s restaurant in Clermont, Florida. Culver’s is considered a fast-casual restaurant, meaning it does not provide sit-down service but does offer fresher and less processed ingredients for their meals. Other examples of fast-casual restaurants are Panera, Chipotle and Zaxby’s.

We are providing the construction site with several roll-off dumpsters and hauling services multiple times each day. Roll-off dumpsters are the ideal disposal product for construction sites. The construction debris that is most often recycled includes asphalt, concrete, cardboard, wood and more. We are capable of recycling up to 98 percent of debris, and can track and report all of the recycled materials for green projects that require it. Ensuring that construction materials are recycled quickly and properly is essential for projects to stay on time and within budget. Sunshine has over 30 trucks that service Orlando and other areas of the state, which guarantees that construction sites won’t fall behind.

Culver’s was founded in Sauk City, Wisconsin in 1984 by Craig Culver and his family. Since then, they have expanded their reach across the United States and now own 518 restaurants. Their menu offerings include the trademark ButterBurgers, famous frozen custard, salads and full entrees. Meals cost anywhere from $8 to $15 and are made to order. Culver’s sponsors several popular sports teams, including the Wisconsin Badgers, Iowa Hawkeyes and Chicago Cubs.

The company in charge of the Culver’s construction site is Schmid Construction. They are a full-service general contractor that delivers the highest quality of work and level of professionalism from the beginning to the completion of a project. Their services include preconstruction, estimating, construction, warranty and design-build. Schmid Construction works throughout the entire Southeastern region on a variety of projects like retail, automotive, office, medical and industrial areas.

Like Sunshine Recycling, Schmid Construction is LEED Certified and believes in bettering the environment while providing a high quality of work. They have a significant amount of experience working on “green” buildings, and they are a U.S. Green Building Council Member.

The Culver’s restaurant construction began in November and is expected to finish next year. We will be providing dumpsters, hauling services and portable toilets for the remainder of the project and hope to provide regular recycling and disposal services to the restaurant once it opens.

Our Roll-Off Dumpsters are on Location at Bank of America Construction Site

roll off dumpsters orlando

We are currently providing our dumpsters and hauling services to the renovation of a Bank of America in Clermont, Florida. Several of our 20-yard roll-off dumpsters are at the construction site, along with portable toilets. We haul these dumpsters multiples times each week to ensure that the debris is being recycled efficiently.

The Bank of America being remodeled is located at 690 East Highway 50 in Clermont, Florida. A division of the Orlando—Kissimmee—Sanford Metropolitan Statistical Area, Clermont is located in Lake County and has a population of over 30,000. Their healthy economy is primarily due to the tourism and retail trade that comes with being an Orlando suburb. The Florida Citrus Tower, located in Clermont, is one of Florida’s first constructed landmarks and is almost 60 years old.

Our roll-off dumpsters, which are shaped like rectangles, are built to be both durable and strong. They are bigger than front-load dumpsters and open at the top—this allows workers to dispose of the construction debris with ease. As opposed to dumpsters that are meant to stay on-site for extended periods of time, roll-off dumpsters have wheels attached to the bottom so they can be hauled frequently and easily. These dumpsters can be used for projects of all kinds, including residential, commercial and industrial developments.

Foshee Construction Company, Inc. is the contractor in charge of the Bank of America remodel. Foshee is considered one of the premiere licensed, full-service site development contractors in Central Florida. They have been in the earthwork and utility services business for over 40 years, and are recognized not only for their work in construction but also for their philanthropic efforts.

Headquartered in Charlotte, North Carolina, Bank of America is thought of as one of the “Big Four” banks in the United States—this group also includes Citigroup, JP Morgan Chase and Wells Fargo. Bank of America provides their banking and financial services to over 50 million consumers with 16,000 ATMs and 5,000 banking centers. It is the twenty-first largest company in total revenue and the second largest bank holding company in assets in the U.S.

We are thrilled to be working with such esteemed businesses in the Orlando area. For more information about our recycling and hauling services, please visit our website.
