Memorial Day Closure

There will be no garbage, recycling or yard waste collections on Monday, May 27 in observance of Memorial Day and all Lee County Solid Waste facilities and offices will be closed.

Collections for the remainder of the week will take place one day after the regularly scheduled collection day for the remainder of the week.

This means 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 for the remainder of the week.

Regular collection schedules resume on Monday, June 3.

Remember, the plastic, glass and metal containers from your Memorial Day celebrations are recyclable. Plastic silverware, soiled paper plates and paper napkins are not.
