Waste Pickups Resume - Food Distribution Centers

Hendry County is establishing a food distribution center at the Household Hazardous Waste Center in LaBelle, located at 1360 Forestry Division Road (turn at EMS station off of Cowboy Way). Other food distribution locations in the County are being developed now and more details will be available shortly.
The Solid Waste transfer stations in LaBelle and Clewiston are now open to the public.

Due to power outages, the LaBelle station is only accepting cash and account customers at this time. Customers in Labelle should understand that their loads will be estimated by the scale attendant and that decision is final. The Clewiston station is accepting credit cards. Residents may take all items needing disposal to these transfer stations.

Curbside pickup for household waste has resumed in the City of LaBelle, Port LaBelle and Fort Denaud. Curbside pickup is for household waste only, not debris. All waste should be properly stored in a trash can.

The City of Clewiston will pick up household waste Wednesday, September 13, 2017 and Thursday, September 14, 2017. Dumpster pickup is today, Wednesday, September 13, 2017. Thursday, September 14, 2017, the regular trash pickup schedule will resume.

Please be mindful that some roads remain impassible and garbage trucks may not be able to pick up all trash on the dates listed above.
