Lee County and the Town of Fort Myers Beach are working to improve traffic flow during construction on Estero Boulevard. As a result, all residential and commercial trash, recycle and yard waste collections on Fort Myers Beach may occur as early as 4am. All Fort Myers Beach residents and businesses should have their trash, recycle and yard waste at the curb before 4am on their regularly scheduled days. This change will reduce vehicles stopping while Advanced Disposal trucks back into businesses and side streets along Estero Boulevard.
At the request of Lee County, the Fort Myers Beach Town Council agreed to waive the noise ordinance for early trash pick-up at its Feb. 16 council meeting. Upon completion of Segment 1 construction, the council is expected to review the waiver.
