Lee County Wants You Prepared For Hurricanes


Lee County Solid Waste is encouraging residents to use the Memorial Day weekend to prepare their properties for hurricane season. Here’s a list of easy-to-do tips from the county to help you batten down your hatch.

– Pruning trees and shrubs now that could damage your home or pool cage during a storm can mitigate damage.
– Survey your property for any items that could become a projectile during a storm. Secure them or set them out for disposal in the coming weeks.
– Yard trimmings can be set out in waste cans, paper lawn and leaf bags, or tied with cotton string into bundles weighing 50 pounds or less. Palm fronds do not need to be tied if they are stacked neatly at the curb in piles weighing less than 50 pounds.
– Cleaning out shed or closets this holiday weekend? Remember the county’s Household
