Processing Household Chemical Waste (HCW) for Recycling or Disposal
The facility's central location makes it easily accessible from all areas of the County. On average, more than 1,500 residential customers per month make use of this disposal site. Chemicals such as latex paint, various aerosol cans, pesticides, pool and spa maintenance chemicals, propane tanks, and other chemicals are brought to the main storage area for sorting and consolidation by Lee County employees.
Solid Waste Technicians consolidate the chemicals received into 55 gallon drums and 5 gallon pails for transport via a contracted waste handler to an approved recycling or disposal facility. Approximately 90 percent of the materials brought to the household chemical waste drop off facility are recycled.
Lee County offers residents convenient, responsible recycling of common electronic items: Computers, All Components, Printers, Copiers, Scanners, Televisions, etc. at this facility.
Please note: We encourage everyone to erase all personal data from their devices before recycling them. Once the device is received at our Topaz facility, we strive to ensure data security in the recycling process. Lee County contracts with industry approved electronics recyclers who erase or destroy hard drives and memory-containing devices and break down each item to recover reusable or recyclable components.
Bagged OrganicLee® Compost is available for purchase at this location.
Please note: Effective October 1, 2016 we no longer provide paper shredding/ document destruction service.
