Lee County asks residents to prepare yard for hurricane season
We’re less than two months away from hurricane season, and Lee County wants to make sure your yard is ready by cleaning it up properly.
Lee County Solid Waste asks you to put your yard waste in paper bags and waste bins instead of plastic bags.
Officials said if the entire community stopped bagging their yard in plastic, we could reuse another 10,000 tons of waste each year.
