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.
