July 4th closures
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 July 4. This means that if the regular collection day is Tuesday, the collection truck will pick up that material on Wednesday. Wednesday's regularly scheduled pickups will occur on Thursday and so on, the rest of the week through Saturday. This schedule is in effect through Saturday, July 8. Regular collection schedules resume on Monday, July 10.
Lee County Solid Waste facilities and offices are closed Tuesday, including the Household Chemical Waste Collection Facility, 6441 Topaz Court, and the Resource Recovery Facility on Buckingham Road.
The Solid Waste Department urges all residents to recycle the paper, plastic, metal and glass from their Independence Day weekend activities.
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 and two transfer stations. In all, the disposal system handles more than 900,000 tons of waste each year.
