Lake County Government Offices to Close for Labor Day; Solid Waste to Shift by One Day


All offices of the Lake County Board of County Commissioners, Property Appraiser, Supervisor of Elections, Tax Collector, the Lake County Animal Shelter and the Lake County Extension Center will be closed Monday, Sept. 7 for Labor Day.


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

Additionally, all 16 Lake County Libraries will be closed.


Lake County Solid Waste operations, including residential collection services, the Central Landfill Facility and residential drop-offs, will also be closed in observance of Labor Day.

Residential collections for citizens living in unincorporated Lake County (not within municipal city limits) will shift to the following day, Tuesday, Sept. 8. 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 and recycling, either bagged or placed into a non-county trash cart, will be accepted after the holiday from Sept. 8-12. No hazardous waste items will be collected.
