Garbage collection for unincoporated Lee Cou ty, Fort Myers Beach, Bonita Springs

By Staff | Nov 25, 2008

Please be advised that all unincorporated areas of Lee County, the city of Bonita Springs and the Town of Fort Myers Beach will have no garbage, recycling and yard waste collection this Thursday, Nov. 27, in observance of the Thanksgiving holiday.

The Thursday collection is moved to Friday; likewise, if Friday is the normal garbage collection day, then the pick up for this week is on Saturday.

This schedule is only in effect for Nov. 27-29. Regular scheduled collection will resume on Monday, Dec. 1, 2008.

Please note that county offices are closed Thanksgiving Day and Friday, Nov. 28.

For the holidays people tend to cook more and often use disposable aluminum cooking and baking pans, a.k.a. foil pans, and canned goods in the preparation of our dishes. Please remember that these pans are recyclable and are a valuable resource for the production of new aluminum products. Aluminum pans and cans are practically 100 percent recyclable, and the aluminum does not degrade as it is recycled — it can be reworked into infinity without losing quality. Make sure to please wash the dish in soapy water prior to placing it in the recycling container.
