Lee County Commissioners voted Tuesday to reopen Gulf Coast Landfill for Hurricane Ian debris. 

The landfill is off State Road 82 in Fort Myers and has been closed for 15 years. The use of the site is exclusively for debris related to Lee County’s hurricane response. 

The first stage of the removal process is collection, then bringing collected debris to debris management sites. The county has 10 debris management sites, and is working on opening one on Lee Boulevard and another on Pine Island in Littleton.
