Construction & Demolition Debris

Residents now can bring storm-related construction and demolition debris (C&D) to both Lee County's Waste-to-Energy Facility and to the Lee/Hendry county landfill free of charge. This is only for C&D that was generated as result of Hurricane Irma and is brought by residents. You must show ID and be a resident of Bonita Springs, Fort Myers Beach, Estero or unincorporated Lee County.

No commercial C&D debris or residential vegetative debris will be accepted. Commercial customers will continue to be charged for C&D disposal. Typical residential C&D includes flood damaged flooring, drywall, furniture and other household materials as the result of Hurricane Irma. Residents are asked not to mix garbage, horticulture, or household chemical wastes with the C&D debris.

Things to Know Before You Go:

 

  • You must unload your own vehicle.
     
  • You must provide your address.
    Note: Depending on the site, the Lee County Drop-Off sites are for horticultural or construction & demolition (C&D) debris from Unincorporated Lee County, City of Bonita Springs, Town of Fort Myers Beach and the Village of Estero residents. 
    Residents in the following incorporated areas must contact their municipality directly for information about public drop-off locations:
    • Sanibel (Keith Williams, 239-472-3700)
     
  • You can come as many times as you need.
     
  • If you hire someone else to clear your property, you must fill out the Hurricane Irma Storm Debris Self-Haul form and have them bring it with them to the drop-off location.

 

​Questions? Please call Lee County Solid Waste Customer Service at 239-533-8000.

 


Another Option: Charlotte County's Zemel Road Landfill

  • Charlotte County's Zemel Road Landfill, 29751 Zemel Road, Punta Gorda, about 2.7 miles north of the Lee County Line just west of U.S. 41, accepts both horticultural and C&D debris. 
     
  • Charlotte County landfill's tipping fee is $72 per ton for people who live outside of Charlotte County. That means a full-size pickup truck, filled to load capacity, would cost roughly $58 to about $86 depending on model.
     
  • Charlotte County's landfill is open 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturdays and is closed Sundays. Customers who must unload by hand are asked to arrive at least 30 minutes prior to closing time.
