Businesses that generate hazardous waste ​are regulated by local ordinance as well as state and federal regulations.

"Hazardous Waste" is a legal term that describes certain toxic, ignitable, corrosive, or reactive wastes generated in manufacturing, industrial or other processes.

Lee County contracts with a private vendor to offer businesses monthly collection of these chemicals.

You can get excellent information about many different types of waste from Lee County's Natural Resources Pollution Prevention website.
