Keep Lee Plastic Free teaming up with Lowe's for yard waste bag giveaway

Lee County Solid Waste is working with Lowe's stores in Fort Myers to give away paper yard waste bags. The bags will be available while supplies last 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, March 23, from at the Lowe's at 14960 S. Tamiami Trail, and on Saturday, March 30 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Lowe's at 8040 Dani Drive.

Shoppers can find the bags at the Keep Lee Plastic Free table inside both stores.

Using paper bags instead of plastic for yard waste keeps the debris out of the landfill, allowing it to be turned into mulch or compost. Almost 10,000 tons of material taken every year to landfills from Lee County could be saved if all residents avoid using plastic bags for yard waste.

Waste cans, another viable alternative, are easy for workers to handle and also save yard waste from landfills.

Representatives from the Solid Waste division will be at the table to answer questions from residents. The Garbax 30-gallon paper bags will be given out while supplies last.

Visit to see what else Lee County residents can get when they make an effort to properly dispose of yard waste.
