Important Notice: City vs County?

We service customers inside the city limits of Lakeland.  If your garbage can is gray, and your recycle can is black, you are a Polk County customer and therefore not serviced by the City of Lakeland.  Please call Polk County Solid Waste and Recycling at 863.284.4319.
