In light of the recent standing water in areas of the County, franchise haulers will continue with their normally scheduled routes and will attempt all collections where it is safe to do so.
In situations where this is not feasible, the franchise hauler will make attempts later in the collection day or that week to collect garbage from the curb.
If you have flood-related debris, please set this at the curb in compliance with current curbside rules, see www.leegov.com/solidwaste/residential/curbside ; for additional set out information. In general, materials must be containerized or bagged and weigh less than 50 pounds. Items like carpeting should be cut into manageable sized pieces weighing less than 50 pounds.
For additional information, call Lee County Solid Waste at (239) 533-8000.
