Power restoration throughout Lee County is at 61%; there are still 100,000 people without power. They should be getting more linemen when the east coast is buttoned up.
Lee County Solid Waste is working to clear hurricane debris. Here are some guidelines:
Most Important – Storm debris will be collected separately from your normal household trash and recycling. Place debris at the curb in separate piles and clear of low hanging
obstacles like trees or power lines or near anything like water meters, fire
hydrants or mail boxes.
Yard waste from this storm event does not need to be bundled. Place it in piles that can easily be managed
by collection personnel with a claw truck.
Be sure to have spoiled food securely tied in plastic bags and at your curb on your regularly scheduled collection day.
Do not set household chemicals at the curb – those need to be taken to the Topaz Court Solid Waste Annex in Fort Myers.
