Solid Waste collection to shift by one day during Labor Day holiday week

Excess household trash to be collected

RELEASE DATE: August 31, 2015

TAVARES — All operations for the Lake County Solid Waste Division, including residential collection services, customer service, landfill operations and residential drop-offs, will be closed on Monday, Sept. 7, in observance of Labor Day. 

Residential collections for citizens living in unincorporated Lake County will be shifted to the following day for the entire week.  

For example, those who normally have residential curbside collection services for household garbage, recycling or yard waste on Monday, will instead have collection on Tuesday during the holiday week. All collection days during the holiday week will move to the next day, and normal Friday collections will instead be picked up on Saturday.

Wednesday, Sept. 9

For residents with twice-per-week garbage collection, both pickup days will shift by one day.

Any excess and overflow trash, either bagged or placed into a non-county issued trash container, will be accepted during the holiday week only. No hazardous waste items will be accepted.

For more information about the county’s residential curbside collection services, contact the Lake County Solid Waste Division at 352-343-9400, email garbagecollection@lakecountyfl.gov, or visit www.lakecountyfl.gov/garbagecollection.
