Town residents will be able to safely and responsibly dispose of household chemical waste (HCW) such as leftover paints, cleaners, herbicides, pesticides, automotive fluids and pool chemicals on Friday, November 6. Drop off is an easy, drive-through process available to all residents at no charge. Hosted in partnership with Lee County Solid Waste, this collection event will be:
Friday, November 6 / 8 a.m. to noon / Bay Oaks Recreation Center, 2731 Oak Street
The Town’s inaugural collection in October 2019 gathered 3,669 pounds of chemicals from 53 residents. The HCW collection is part of the town’s interlocal agreement with Lee County to provide residents with convenient and responsible disposal of chemicals that might otherwise be harmful to people and the environment.
Businesses that need chemical waste disposal can call 239-533-8000 to schedule an appointment for the monthly business collection held at Lee County’s permanent HCW drop-off location. That location is off Metro Parkway in south Fort Myers at 6441 Topaz Court.
