FORT MYERS, FL (September 12, 2017) – The City of Fort Myers has resumed solid waste pickup for both residential and commercial customers.  Recycling service has not yet been resumed.

The residential pickup schedule for this week is as follows:

In order to accommodate the large amount of horticultural debris around the City, Fort Myers Public Works has begun collecting yard waste.  Customers will be serviced as soon after their normal pickup date as possible, starting with regular Monday pickups. 

Please follow these guidelines when placing yard waste curbside:

  • Pile yard debris no more than four feet from the curb.
  • Do not obstruct the roadways or visibility with your yard waste
  • Keep your yard waste separate from other waste set out for disposal
  • If possible, please place small items like leaves into bags to prevent them from blowing

If you have any questions concerning your service, please contact the City of Fort Myers 24-hour response line at (239) 321-8100.
