Labor Day Closure

Lee County Solid Waste facilities and offices are closed Monday, Sept. 2, in observance of the Labor Day holiday. This includes the operation at the Household Chemical Waste Collection Facility, 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 Sept. 2.

This means that if the 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, Sept. 7. Regular collection schedules resume on Monday, Sept. 9.


The Household Chemical Waste Collection Facility will be open from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sept 7.

As you enjoy the holiday, please remember that plastic and glass bottles and metal cans are all recyclable. Paper plates, napkins, foil and plastic silverware are not.



Lee County Solid Waste, a division of the Department of Public Utilities, provides a variety of convenient waste and recycling services to more than 320,000 households in unincorporated Lee County and six municipalities. The Division also owns and operates technologically advanced waste-to-energy and material recycling facilities, supported by a landfill, two transfer stations, a household chemical waste facility and a Reuse Center. In all, the disposal system handles more than 1.1 million tons of waste each year.
