Establishing Service

Lee County offers once-weekly collection of garbage, recycling and yard waste. Establishing service is easy. One phone call is all it takes.


For Residents

If you have bought a newly constructed home:

  • Your prorated solid waste assessment is paid as part of your certificate of occupancy. In subsequent years, you will be billed annually on your property tax bill. Call your waste hauler to begin service. Rate information for your property is available on the Property Appraiser’s website at www.leepa.org.
     

If you have bought existing construction:

  • Your prorated garbage assessment will be part of your closing costs when you buy your home. In subsequent years, you will be billed annually on your property tax bill. Call your waste hauler to begin service. Rate information for your property is available on the Property Appraiser’s website at www.leepa.org.
     

If you are renting a single family home, duplex or quadraplex:

  • Your landlord will have established collection service for the residence. These charges may or may not be included in your rent.
     

If you are renting an apartment, mobile home or R.V. lot:

  •  Your property management will inform you of the collection services provided on property.
