The City of Cape Coral is in Lee County, Florida with Sarasota and North Port to the northwest, Fort Myers to the northeast, Bonita Springs and Collier County to the southeast.

Trash Pick Up Holidays

Here you can see the city-observed holidays.

  • New Year’s Day: 1st Day in January
  • Memorial Day: Last Monday in May
  • Independence Day: 4th Day of July
  • Labor Day: 1st Monday in September
  • Thanksgiving Day: 4th Thursday in November
  • Christmas Day: 25th Day of December

If the holiday happens to fall on Saturday or Sunday, your collection schedule will not be affected.

If the holiday falls on a weekday, the collection schedule will be delayed one day from the day of the holiday for the remainder of the week.

For instance, if the holiday falls on a Wednesday, then Monday and Tuesday collections would be performed as regularly scheduled, Wednesday’s collection would occur on Thursday, Thursday’s collection would occur on Friday, and Friday’s collection would occur on Saturday.

Junk removal services are not be as picky about the items they’re collecting so if the city won’t take the item, this may be your best bet. There’s usually a fee involved with junk removal but most companies can tell you ahead of time approximately what it’s going to cost.
