Lake County government offices to close for Memorial Day; Solid Waste collection to shift by one day


TAVARES —All offices of the Lake County Board of County Commissioners, Clerk of Courts, Property Appraiser, Supervisor of Elections and Tax Collector will be closed on Monday, May 29 in observance of Memorial Day.

The Lake County Animal Shelter, the Lake County Extension Center and Discovery Gardens and all 15 Lake County Library System libraries will also be closed for the holiday.

LakeXpress, the fixed-route bus system, will not operate on Memorial Day. Lake County Connection, the county’s disadvantaged transportation service, will provide dialysis service only on the holiday.

Lake County Solid Waste operations, including residential collection services, customer service, the Central Landfill Facility and residential drop-offs, will be closed on Monday, May 29 in observance of Memorial Day.

Residential collections for citizens living in unincorporated Lake County (not within municipal city limits) will shift to the following day for the entire week. For example, those who normally have residential curbside collection services for household garbage, recycling or yard waste on Monday, will instead have collection on Tuesday during the holiday week. All collection days that week 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, pickup will 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 May 30 and June 3. No hazardous waste items will be collected.
