How YOU Can Keep Lee County Beautiful:

We as Lee county citizens have inherited such a beautiful piece of this world. We are blessed with glorious mountains, rolling hills, deep green valleys, and streams that are second to none in beauty. It is our duty as citizens of this county to help maintain what we have been given. Below is a list of ways that an everyday citizen can help Keep Lee County Beautiful:

 

  • Do NOT Litter: If you would like a free litter bag to put inside your vehicle please contact the Litter Control Office
  • Keep your property free of litter and clutter: Old cars, washers, dryers, garbage, scrap metal, and much more can be considered as litter (many of these items can be sold at local scrap yards)
  • Volunteer: Call the Litter Control Office to ask about ways you can volunteer and get involved
  • Report Illegal Dumping and Heavy Littered Roads: This will help the Litter Office identify locations that need to be cleaned


We recently performed a clean up at

Take ALL solid waste (building debris, tree trimmings, etc.) that is not household garbage to the transfer station located in Jonesville. Their prices are reasonable:

  • General Waste: $37.50 per ton
  • Tires: $60.00 per ton
  • Metal: FREE

 

Convenience Centers (dumpsters) are located throughout the county and they take Household Garbage, White Goods (metal), mattresses, and couches. They are free for use by Lee County Residents!

 

 

Litter Control Programs

 

Lee County Assign-A-Highway Program

 

  • Probationers are assigned a 1 mile stretch of highway that they must clean once every two weeks

Recycling

In July of 2009, Lee County implemented a county wide recycling program. The vision for the program was simple; we wanted an effective program at a low cost. We have partnered with Tri-City Waste Paper in these efforts and at this time in Lee County, the citizens are able to recycle the following products: Cardboard, Plastic Bottles (1 & 2), Mixed Paper, and Newspaper. We will have 10 centers throughout the county by December 1, 2009. They are located within our convenience centers in Blackwater, Flatwoods, Stickleyville, Ewing, Dryden, Ben Hur, Gibson Station, Woodway, Keokee, and at the Transfer Station Gate.

(Please DO NOT put used tissue paper or toilet paper in the bins)
