RECYCLING REMINDER........................

No Plastic Bags or Shredded Paper

The City reminds residents not to place plastic bags (e.g. grocery bags) and shredded paper into the recycle bins. These materials cannot be recycled and can cause damage to the equipment at the Lee County Recycling Facility. Please take these items and place them in the regular garbage for disposal.

Cape residents also are reminded not to place trash and recycle containers at the edge of the street prior to 5 p.m. the evening before your scheduled collection day. Residents also are asked to move the containers back to the side of the home on pickup day and not leave containers by the road for extended periods.

The single-stream recycling has been a big success in Cape Coral, and we appreciate the participation and efforts from our citizens. For information on single-stream recycling and items that can be recycled, go to www.lee-county. com/solidwaste and look under the “Residential Information” dropdown menu.
