Lee County operations make adjustments for Memorial Day

By Staff | May 19, 2017

The Memorial Day holiday on Monday, May 29, will result in some closures and schedule changes for Lee County operations. Here are the changes:

Solid Waste

All garbage, recycling and yard waste collections in unincorporated Lee County, the city of Bonita Springs and the Town of Fort Myers Beach will take place one day after the regularly scheduled collection day for the entire week beginning May 29. This means that if the regular collection day is Monday, the collection truck will pick up that material on Tuesday. Tuesday’s regularly scheduled pickups will occur on Wednesday and so on, the rest of the week through Saturday. This schedule is in effect through Saturday, June 3. Regular collection schedules resume on Monday, June 5.

Lee County Solid Waste facilities and offices are closed Monday, including the Household Chemical Waste Collection Facility, 6441 Topaz Court, and the Resource Recovery Facility on Buckingham Road.

The Solid Waste Department urges all residents to recycle the paper, plastic, metal and glass from their Memorial Day weekend activities.

Parks & Recreation

Parks, pools, boat ramps and preserves remain open on Monday, but offices and recreation centers are closed until Tuesday, May 30.


All library locations will be closed on Monday and each branch will resume regular operating hours on Tuesday, May 30.

Animal Services

Animal Services, 5600 Banner Drive, Fort Myers, will be closed for the holiday and will reopen at 8 a.m. Tuesday, May 30.
