Lee County Solid Waste has opened a location for people impacted by the tornadoes and severe weather to drop off their construction, demolition, and plant debris.

Residents can drop off those items at 14790 A and W Bulb Road, Fort Myers beginning at 1 p.m. on Monday. Lee County Solid Waste says the site will be open until 6 p.m. Monday and will be available from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. this week and into the weekend.

Lee County asks that only residents who need a place to dispose of debris use the drop-off location. Contractors or commercial drivers will be turned away.

The county says the site is designed to help residents who want to begin clearing their properties. This is in addition to the regular curbside service provided by the county, which is not impacted Martin Luther King Day.

The Resource Recovery Facility on Buckingham Road is open with its regular hours until 6 p.m. on Monday.

The Household Chemical Waste Collection Facility at 6441 Topaz Court is also open Monday. It will be through this week and next weekend for people who need to dispose of chemical or hazardous waste.
