County operations adjust schedules for Memorial Day

By Staff | May 25, 2018

Most Lee County administrative operations will be closed Monday, May 28, in observance of Memorial Day.

The holiday schedule adjustments:

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 28.

This means that if your 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 2. Regular collection schedules will resume on Monday, June 4.

Lee County Solid Waste facilities and offices are closed on Monday, May 28, in observance of the holiday. This includes the operation at the Household Chemical Waste Collection Facility, 6441 Topaz Court, and the Resource Recovery Facility on Buckingham Road.

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

Lee County Utilities

The office of Lee County Utilities will be closed on May 28, in observance of Memorial Day.
