 Yard Waste

Residents of Lee County receive one curbside yard waste collection each week.

Yard waste consists of:

  • grass clippings
  • tree limbs and branches
  • palm fronds
  • leaves
  • fallen fruit
  • dead plants and flowers

Yard waste must be containerized (50 lbs. or less) or securely tied into bundles not heavier than 50 lbs. and no longer than 6 feet in length.

Up to 50 lbs. of unbundled palm fronds may be placed at the curb. Any excess palm fronds must be tied into bundles (50 lbs. or less).

When using plastic bags, make sure that the contents can be easily identified by the refuse truck driver (leave a twig or small branch sticking out).

Fencing and ornamental wood borders are not yard waste. Please dispose of these items in the regular household garbage.

Call your garbage company for a cost estimate for large-scale yard waste disposal projects when containerizing or bundling is not an option.
