About Solid Waste Collection

The City of Fort Myers Solid Waste Division is responsible for the overall collection of the City’s municipal solid waste (MSW) better known as trash and garbage.

Solid Waste Pick-up Schedule & Map

The Solid Waste Division collects and transports for disposal once a week all municipal solid waste, single-stream recycling and horticulture to the Lee County Resource Recovery Facility located at 10500 Buckingham Road. 

For more information or to order additional garbage cans or recycle containers, please call (239) 321-8100.

RESIDENTIAL GARBAGE COLLECTION What does this change mean for residential garbage can customers? Additional garbage cans will add over $7 to your monthly bill. To avoid this cost, you can use this opportunity to recycle more and throw away less. Call the City of Fort Myers Solid Waste Division at 239-321-8100 to request FREE your choice of an 18-gallon recycle bin or a 65-gallon recycle container on wheels.

COMMERCIAL GARBAGE COLLECTION What does this change mean for commercial garbage can customers? Commercial customers who normally fill more than one 90-gallon container can subscribe to a small dumpster or a second 90-gallon garbage can. Please contact the Solid Waste offices to determine the proper level of service required.

Residential Garbage/Recycling and Commercial Garbage Cans will be picked up on the following days in the following areas as listed below. Residential recycling will be collected on the same day as garbage and all recyclable materials can go in the same recycling container.
