Due to the end of DST, the hours of operation at public Hurricane Ian debris dump sites will be adjusted beginning Sunday. The sites will be open from 7 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. daily.
The sites are:
- Mosquito Control, 1840 Gunnery Road, Lehigh Acres
- Brooks Park, 50 South Road, Fort Myers
- San Carlos Utility Site, 18078 Cypress Point Road, Fort Myers
- Shell Factory, 2805 N. Tamiami Trail, North Fort Myers
Residents who have the ability and desire to transport Hurricane Ian debris themselves can use the public dump sites for plant and structural debris. Only storm debris will be accepted and you must be prepared to unload your trucks yourself. These sites are limited to light trucks and small trailers of 5 cubic yards or less. No self-loading equipment is allowed.
Debris haul crews continue daily collections throughout Lee County. The contractor, CrowderGulf, estimates that the first pass to clear hurricane debris in unincorporated Lee County will be completed within the next 30 days.
Each neighborhood will receive a minimum of a second pass for debris removal. Additional crossings will be made as needed, especially in neighborhoods that have suffered both wind damage and severe flooding.
