Memorial Day Closures
Lee County Solid Waste facilities and offices will be closed on Monday, May 25 in observance of the Memorial Day holiday. This includes the operation at the Household Chemical Waste Collection Facility at 6441 Topaz Court and the Resource Recovery Facility on Buckingham Road.
All garbage, recycling and yard waste collections in unincorporated Lee County, the City of Bonita Springs and the Town of Fort Myers Beach will take place one day after the regularly scheduled collection day for the entire week beginning May 25. This means that if your regular collection day is Monday, the collection truck will pick up that material on Tuesday. Tuesday’s regularly scheduled pickups will occur on Wednesday and so on, the rest of the week through Saturday. This schedule is in effect through Saturday, May 30. Regular collection schedules resume on Monday, June 1.
Please remember to recycle the paper, plastic, metal and glass from your Memorial Day weekend activities.
Size it Right!
Lee County Ordinance 11-27 requires that your garbage can be no larger than 40 gallons with two handles and a tight-fitting lid.
Please do not place larger containers at the curb. Each garbage can (including contents) or heavy mil plastic bag should weigh no more than 50 pounds.
RESIDENTS PLEASE DON'T TRASH your recycling!
The Solid Waste Division has seen more non-recyclable trash entering the Material Recycling Facility. Reducing the amount of trash in your recycling container will enhance our ability to produce marketable products.
Please ensure that the recyclable material you put in your recycling container is truly recyclable and NOT TRASH. Thank you.
