Lee County Solid Waste has opened a site for people affected by tornadoes and extreme weather to leave construction, demolition, and factory debris.
Residents can drop off those items at 14790 A and W Bulb Road, Fort Myers starting at 1 p.m. Monday. Lee County Solid Waste said the site will be open until 6 p.m. Monday and will operate from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. this week and into the weekend.
Lee County requires only residents who need a place to dispose of debris to use drop-off locations. Commercial contractors or drivers will be turned away.
The county says the site is designed to help residents who want to start cleaning up their property. This is in addition to the regular curbside service provided by the county, which is not affected by Martin Luther King Day.
The Resource Recovery Facility on Buckingham Road is open normal hours until 6pm on Monday.
The Household Chemical Waste Collection at 6441 Topaz Court is also open on Mondays. It will be passed this week and next weekend for those who need to handle chemicals or hazardous waste.
