The Solid Waste Recycling Solutions survey is now closed. Check back soon for results!
Modern recycling is sorted by machines and people, so Lakelanders can very simply recycle their clean plastic containers, glass containers and metal containers and paper in their blue carts. Last year, Lakeland recycled 16 million pounds of plastic & glass bottles, cans, plastic containers, cardboard, and paper. “Contamination” in recycling means items that are not accepted because the facility cannot process them, plastic bags, plastic wrap, and other plastic film are the biggest source of contamination in Lakeland.
