We have begun to provide our hauling services to a town in the Orlando—Kissimmee—Sanford metropolitan area called Lady Lake. Located in Central Florida, this small town of over 14,000 residents is near many of the metro area’s most popular tourist attractions and the Florida Turnpike. With an average temperature of 73 degrees and a large amount of available recreation activities, this picturesque town is worthy of your attention.
The rapidly growing business town of Lady Lake turned to Sunshine Recycling for its assistance in keeping the area as environmentally friendly as possible. We recently signed a contract stating that we will be providing them with our hauling services for their sludge containers for the next five years.
While sludge containers might sound like a Halloween decoration you were hoping to put on your front porch this year, these actually serve a very different purpose. In an effort to save money and help the environment, the town of Lady Lake has begun to recycle their human waste into sludge containers. The refuse is then transformed from liquid waste into a dirt-like material that can later be recycled into fertilizer.
Often referred to as biosolids or night soil, this type of fertilizer is treated by local sewage treatment plants before it can be applied to croplands.
Regardless of the different opinions on this matter, recycling human waste in sludge containers is more beneficial to the environment and residents’ pockets. The town of Lady Lake saves thousands of dollars each year by recycling their waste this way.
Sunshine Recycling is no stranger to helping the environment. The company is LEED certified by the United States Green Building Council (USGBC) and is capable of recycling massive amounts of debris in an environmentally friendly way. We recycle everything we can in an effort to reduce the amount of garbage contributed to landfills and reduce greenhouse emissions.

We are currently providing one 4-yard front load dumpster and one 8-yard front load dumpster as well as hauling services to South Lake Plaza, a one-stop shopping center located in Clermont, FL. South Lake Plaza is one of the most popular shopping centers in the Orlando suburbs and is conveniently located within a quarter mile of one of Florida’s main highways, the junction of U.S. 27 and S.R. 50. We are under a five-year service agreement with the shopping center, and we couldn’t be happier about it.
Front load dumpsters are the ideal product for any prolonged contracts like South Lake Plaza’s. They are part of a long-term waste management solution and are utilized to collect trash and recyclables. This is different than roll off dumpsters, which are used for more temporary waste management solutions. Front load dumpsters are also different than roll off dumpsters in look and size. While both are constructed from strong and durable thick gauge steel, front load dumpsters are small, square and equipped with a lid.
South Lake Plaza is home to twenty businesses that cater to all of your needs. It is owned and managed by the Hurtak Family Partnership, Ltd., a commercial real estate management partnership. Clermont residents flock to this shopping center to get all of their errands and shopping done in one place. Some of the most popular destinations at the shopping center include Winn-Dixie, Bealls Outlet, Rent-A-Center, bright house networks and The UPS Store.
Most of the businesses at South Lake Plaza utilize Sunshine Recycling’s services. Several stores are considering pursuing a contract with one of our sales representatives on an individual basis to benefit their business.
Clermont is an up-and-coming suburb of Orlando that has shown significant population and economic growth in the last decade. South Lake Plaza and Sunshine Recycling will continue to be here and provide their services for residents both new and old!
We just started a new project in Clermont providing roll off dumpsters for the construction of a new O’Reilly Auto Parts store on Hwy 50. We are working with R.E. Crawford Construction. The project just started at the beginning of August. The new 6,972 square foot store will replace a vacated Dairy Queen.
We are currently providing one 20-yard construction dumpster and regular hauling services. This is the third new O’Reilly location in our area. It is joining an existing store in Groveland, plus a larger store that just opened in June in Leesburg and another location that is still in the planning stages in Eustis that will be located near the Lake Eustis Chamber of Commerce. These new stores are part of an expansion plan that includes opening 200 new stores this year.
The recent boom in new construction shows the economy is recovering and there are opportunities for new development. Sunshine Recycling has provided construction dumpsters and other waste management solutions for many recent construction and demolition projects in Clermont. We have provided a range of waste management solutions for projects in Clermont including construction dumpster rentals, portable toilets, and recycling.
Recent jobs we’ve assisted on include a renovated Nissan auto dealership, an ABC liquor store, and a retirement living community. Last fall, we also provided dumpsters and hauling to clean up debris after a sinkhole formed in Clermont and caused buildings to collapse.
The O’Reilly Auto Parts store in Clermont will be located at 520 E. Highway 50 with frontage on East Colonial Drive. The lot is a little over one acre so there will be ample parking available as well. Construction is still in the very early phases. The previous building has been demolished and now the property is being prepared to lay pipes and the foundation for the new store. We look forward to providing continuing waste management services until the construction is complete.
We are currently working with Clermont-based Schmid Construction on the development of a new standalone Dick’s Sporting Goods store on Hwy 50 in Orlando near Fashion Square Mall.
The store will be a whopping 50,010 square feet and is the second Dick’s store to open this year in central Florida. Another standalone location in the Sandhill Commons shopping center in Clermont is set to open on Friday, June 27 with a three-day celebration.
The new store facing Hwy 50 sits on a 5.1-acre lot that was previously occupied by a Toys ‘R’ Us and smaller shopping spaces that were demolished late last year. Developed by UP Development Inc. based in Tennessee, the site will also include a smaller 3,100-square-foot restaurant space. The lease for the restaurant has not yet been confirmed, but the Orlando Business Journal reports that UP Development was in talks with Noodles & Co.
We are currently providing one construction dumpster and multiple hauls to empty and return the container. We also have portable toilets on site. The construction has just started and the building will take several months to complete.
The new development will revitalize the area around Orlando Fashion Square Mall and may encourage other businesses to expand and open locations in this area, too. While construction always brings temporary jobs to the city, the new retail store and restaurant will also provide long-term employment opportunities and continue to positively impact our local economy. We appreciate being part of the continued growth and development of our city.
We have a large fleet of trucks and dumpsters of all sizes in Orlando and our schedules are flexible to accommodate construction jobs of any scale that may require frequent hauls per day, week or month. Construction debris can be transported to a local landfill, but may also be sorted and recycled either in part or in its entirety. As a LEED-certified waste management company, we are dedicated to supporting environmental initiatives and can provide recycling hauling during construction in Orlando.
If you are starting a construction project in or around Orlando, please contact us for pricing.
Sunshine Recycling is currently on the building site of a new 334-unit apartment complex, Altis at Sand Lake, in Orlando. We are providing several sizes of construction dumpsters plus portable toilets and holding tanks for the construction trailers.
We have 30-yard dumpsters to collect typical construction debris. We are also providing 20-yard dumpsters to collect and haul concrete and metals for recycling. The new apartment complex is located at 7001 Palm Parkway and joins a family of communities located across Florida in Broward County, Coconut Creek, Pembrook Pines and Tampa.
Recycling Construction Debris
As a LEED-certified construction and waste management company, we are capable of hauling and recycling typical construction debris. Common construction debris is similar to items recycled at home and include paper, plastics, metal and wood. Other kinds of debris like brick and concrete can also be recycled.
Regardless if a job is LEED-certified, we are able to collect and haul debris specifically to be recycled. As an independent hauler, we can haul your recyclables to a facility closest to your job site which will often save you money in the end. In addition, recycling is a cost-effective initiative because it’s usually less expensive than abandoning your waste in a landfill.
For this job, we’ve provided 20-yard dumpsters to collect concrete and metal to be recycled. This container is the recommended size for collecting heavy and bulky debris. Using a larger container to collect larger debris might make sense at first, but larger dumpsters can easily be filled beyond recommended capacity. This means that not only are those dumpsters harder to load, haul and empty but they will also cost you more because you’ll fill the dumpster beyond your allowed tonnage.
If you are working on new construction in Orlando, please give us a call. We offer many benefits to contractors including same-day service and dumpster delivery and multiple hauls to fit your construction schedule.
