Household Hazardous Waste and Bulk Item Drop Off Event Set for August 1
The City is partnering with Lee County’s Solid Waste Division and Waste Pro to offer Cape Coral residents a convenient and responsible way to dispose of household hazardous waste and large items that don’t fit into Waste Pro trash containers. Unwanted items will be collected at a free drop-off event on Saturday, August 1 from 7 a.m. to 11 a.m. Cape Coral residents can bring items for disposal to 1020 Cultural Park Boulevard (parking lot next to the Cape Coral Police Department building).
Household chemical waste cannot be placed in dumpsters or curbside in the Waste Pro containers. Residents can bring drain cleaners, pool chemicals, pesticides, herbicides, liquid paint and thinners, polishes and strippers, fluorescent tubes, electronics, car and boat batteries, auto oil and antifreeze, gas propane tanks, flares and ammunition, and boat flares to the drop-off event.
While Waste Pro picks up bulk items curbside at no charge, this is another opportunity for residents to dispose of these items.
Acceptable items for drop off include:
Construction Debris (less than 2 yards)
Waste Pro will have staff available at this event if any resident needs assistance unloading bulk items. This is a residential program and commercial building materials will not be accepted
All visitors are encouraged to wear facemasks and remain in their vehicles at all times to comply with social distancing requirements. Materials for drop-off will be collected from trunks of vehicles and the beds of trucks. Proof of residency is required to drop off items. Proof of residency may include photo identification with a Cape Coral address or photo identification and a utility bill, with an active Cape Coral utility account.
