LAKELAND, FL (September 7, 2017) – The City of Lakeland Solid Waste (garbage collection) Division is currently collecting refuse per the normal schedule.  Refuse trucks and crews are working diligently to collect the normal refuse.  However, with the impeding threat of Hurricane Irma, residents are asked to adhere to the following:

  • Please do not cut and or place any items at the curb for bulk collection at this point.
  • If the tree trimming or site cleanup has not already been completed, do not start it now, it will not be collected prior to the storm.
  • Solid Waste crews will not be returning to collection areas from earlier in the week to make emergency bulk collections.
  • Make plans to secure any loose debris on or around your property during the storm.

The City of Lakeland Solid Waste Division is making every effort to collect any debris that has been called into the Solid Waste Offices for collection.  We will update this information as needed daily.

There will be NO solid waste collection on Monday, September 11th. We will update this post and the Solid Waste Division page with more info about pickup for the week of September 11th-15th as it becomes available.
