Solid Waste collection to shift by one day during Memorial Day holiday

RELEASE DATE: May 16, 2016

TAVARES —All Lake County Solid Waste operations, including residential collection services, customer service, the Central Landfill Facility and residential drop-offs, will be closed on Monday, May 30, in observance of Memorial Day. Residential collections for citizens living in unincorporated Lake County will shift 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 that week will move to the next day, and Friday collection will be picked up on Saturday.

For residents with twice-per-week garbage collection, collections will occur one day later for each of the two pickups. Recycling and yard waste collection will also shift by one day during the holiday week. 

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

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