The Lee County Sheriff’s Office partnered with Waste Pro USA this holiday season to help keep community members safe by allowing everyone to dispose of their cardboard recyclables after opening gifts.
According to the LCSO Facebook post, empty gift boxes can be safely disposed at district substations instead of being put at the end of driveways. This program is limited to disposal of cardboard recyclables.
Substations accepting empty boxes include:
- South District – 10520 Reynolds Street, Bonita Springs
- West District – 15650 Pine Ridge Road, Fort Myers
- Central District – 14750 Six Mile Cypress Parkway, Fort Myers
- East District – 1301 Homestead Road, Lehigh Acres
- North District – 121 Pondella Road, North Fort Myers
- Gulf District – 13921 Waterfront Drive, Pineland
The crime prevention recycling program with Waste Pro and LCSO began at 9 a.m. Saturday and will operate at participating substations until 5 a.m. Dec. 31.
Anyone with questions about drop-off locations can contact the LCSO community response unit at 239-477-1CRU (278).
