All offices of the Lake County Board of County Commissioners, Clerk of Courts, Property Appraiser, Supervisor of Elections, Tax Collector, the Lake County Animal Shelter, and the Lake County Extension Center will be closed on Monday, May 28 in observance of Memorial Day.

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 28 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 collection of 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 29 and June 2. No hazardous waste items will be collected. For more information about the county’s residential curbside collection services, contact Lake County Solid Waste at 352-343-3776, email, or visit

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

All Lake County Library System Libraries will be closed on Memorial Day. Fruitland Park Library, 205 W. Berckman St., Fruitland Park, will close early at 4 pm on Friday, May 25 and reopen with regular hours on Tuesday, May 29.
