To ensure the health, safety and general welfare of the citizens
of Lee County by providing a responsible and economical
solid waste management system
Over the past 20 years, Lee County has developed one of the country's most successful and sustainable recycling and solid waste management systems.
Lee County has consistently reported from 35 to 42 percent of documented recycling activities for more than 12 years and was named Florida's top county for recycling success in 2008.
We applaud Lee County residents and businesses for supporting our recycling program. Including energy recovered from our Waste To Energy Facility, Lee County has already exceeded Florida's 75 percent recycling goal.
The Solid Waste Division plans to continue implementing programs that make recycling, resource recovery and responsible waste management easier. We pledge to strive for even more effective and sustainable solutions for the future.
"There is no such thing as trash; everything is of value."
We ask you to pledge continued support of a clean and sustainable world through your ongoing recycling efforts.
