Cape Coral residents should mark their calendars for the annual Household Hazardous Waste Collection Day. The Lee County Solid Waste Division will collect hazardous waste on Saturday, March 16 at the Public Works Annex at 1750 Everest Parkway (east of Del Prado). Collection hours will be 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. for the general public.
Household chemical waste cannot be placed in dumpsters, compactors or curbside. Citizens need to dispose of these items at a scheduled drop-off collection day, which is a free service provided by Lee County Solid Waste in partnership with the City.
Residents can bring drain cleaners, pool chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, liquid paint and thinners, polishes and strippers, fluorescent tubes, electronics, car and boat batteries, auto oil and antifreeze, gas propane tanks, flares and ammunition, and boat flares.
