Donated not Wasted

April 5 at 8:00 am through April 18 at 5:00 pm

Lee County Solid Waste’s fourth annual “Donated not Wasted” campaign will launch on April 4 to encourage seasonal residents and visitors to donate unopened pantry items before returning north.

Since the program’s inception, 15,193 pounds of food has been diverted from potential disposal and sent to the Harry Chapin Food Bank — enough food to provide 12,660 meals.

From April 4 to April 18, people can drop off-dry and canned food items at any of 21 collection points throughout Lee County.
