Lee County adjusts some operational schedules for Memorial Day

Most Lee County administrative operations will be closed Monday, May 27, in observance of Memorial Day.

The county’s holiday schedule operational adjustments are as follows: 

Solid Waste 

All garbage, recycling and yard waste collections in unincorporated Lee County, the City of Bonita Springs, the Village of Estero and the Town of Fort Myers Beach will take place one day after the regularly scheduled collection day for the entire week beginning May 27.

Tuesday’s regularly scheduled pickups will occur on Wednesday and so on for the rest of the week through Saturday, June 1. Regular collection schedules resume on Monday, June 3.

This includes operations at the Household Chemical Waste Collection Facility, 6441 Topaz Court, the Resource Recovery Facility on Buckingham Road and the Lee/Hendry Regional Solid Waste Disposal Facility.

Solid Waste urges all residents to recycle plastic, metal and glass containers from Memorial Day weekend activities.
