TAVARES —All offices of the Lake County Board of County Commissioners, Property Appraiser, Supervisor of Elections, Tax Collector, Clerk of Court, the Lake County Animal Shelter, the Lake County Extension Center and Discovery Gardens, and all 15 Lake County Library System libraries will be closed on Wednesday, July 4 for Independence Day.
LakeXpress, the county’s fixed-route bus system, will not operate on the holiday. Lake County Connection, the county’s disadvantaged transportation service, will provide dialysis service only on July 4.
Lake County Solid Waste operations, including residential collection services, customer service, the Central Landfill Facility and residential drop-offs, will be closed on Wednesday, July 4. Residential collections for citizens living in unincorporated Lake County (not within municipal city limits) will shift to the following day after the holiday. For example, those who normally have residential curbside collection services for household garbage, recycling or yard waste on Wednesday, will instead have collection on Thursday. All collection days after the holiday will move to the next day, and Friday collection will be picked up on Saturday.
For residents in certain communities with twice-per-week garbage collection, regular pickups for the remainder of the holiday week after Wednesday will also occur one day later for each of the two pickups.
Any excess trash, either bagged or placed into a non-county trash cart, will be accepted during the holiday week only between July 5 and July 10. No hazardous waste items will be collected. For more information about the county’s residential curbside collection services, contact Lake County Solid Waste at 352-343-3776, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit www.lakecountyfl.gov/garbagecollection.
