Most common business waste can be placed in either the garbage or recycle container (for example food waste or office paper).
However, if you have questions about a specific material, please check the links below, check on Lee County's Pollution Prevention webpage for business hazardous waste, or call one of our friendly customer service representatives at 239-533-8000.
Remember, responsible disposal protects our waterways and environment.
If you are unable to wait for your regularly scheduled pick up, you can bring non-chemical items to the Resource Recovery Facility's Citizen Drop Off area at 10500 Buckingham Rd. Fort Myers, FL 33905. You will be charged by weight.
Please Note: All chemicals must be taken to the Topaz Court Solid Waste Facility at 6441 Topaz Court, Fort Myers, FL 33966.
Special Wastes that require approval prior to disposal at Lee County facilities include contaminated soils, sediments, sludges and sand; water and wastewater treatment residuals; asbestos containing material; and other materials or by-products that may contain regulated pollutants.
Special wastes are typically managed at the Lee Hendry Landfill and must be approved and scheduled prior to delivery.
