The City of Lakeland’s contract debris haulers has crews in every zone of the service territory.  Please be patient, crews will get to your neighborhood, and they will do multiple passes until all debris is removed.  The contract haulers started debris removal on October 7th, concentrating on south Lakeland at the time because initial assessment showed that area was hit the hardest by Hurricane Ian.  As of today, Monday, October 10th, there are debris removal crews working every quadrant of the solid waste service area. Early estimates have the first sweep of the Lakeland community completed in two weeks from the start, and we are now on Day Four with having our debris haulers on the street.
