Lee County Solid Waste Partners with Habitat for Humanity and the Village of Estero for Waste Collection Event

Village of Estero residents may safely and responsibly dispose of household chemical waste (HCW) such as leftover paints, cleaners, herbicides, pesticides, automotive fluids and pool chemicals on Wednesday, April 17. The collection event will be held from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Estero Community Park, 9200 Corkscrew Palms Blvd. 

Drop off is an easy, drive-through process available to all residents at no charge. 

In addition to Lee County’s long-standing partnership with Village of Estero to collect HCW, the County will also be partnering with Habitat for Humanity to collect gently used bulk items for reuse and repurposing. 

Residents are encouraged to bring items that can be donated for reuse. No white goods, such as refrigerators or dishwashers, will be accepted. 

These semi-annual events give residents another way to dispose of large gently used bulk items and a safe, responsible way to dispose of HCW. 

Businesses that need chemical waste disposal can call MXI Environmental Services at 276-477-0947 to schedule an appointment for the monthly business collection held at the county’s permanent Household Chemical Waste drop-off location, 6441 Topaz Court, off Metro Parkway in south Fort Myers.
