Community Clean Up Days

Men Disposing of Items

Community Clean Up Days! 


You must be a resident of Lakeland to participate.

If you have any questions please call City Hall at 901-867-5409. 

Twice a year, the City holds Community Clean Up Days. They are usually held the first week of November and the last Saturday in April (location to be announced).

Lakeland residents can take advantage of the opportunity to dispose of hard to get rid of items they have been thinking about throwing away.
