Lee County’s cleanup effort resulted in collecting more than 1.6 million cubic yards of horticulture and C&D (construction and demolition) debris in three months. The cost to clean up the debris is estimated at $36 million to $40 million in unincorporated Lee County and the Village of Estero, with anticipated partial reimbursement from the Federal Emergency Management Agency.
