Bulk Waste Pickup

Looking to Dispose of Bulk Waste?

The City’s contracted waste hauler does not provide bulk waste pickup.

The City of Lakeland purchased a knuckle boom loader (boom truck) to provide bulk waste pickup for its residents available once weekly.


Curbside pickup of bulk waste can be scheduled by calling City Hall at 901-867-2717.

Collection Fees:

Trees/Construction Debris: 0 to 10 cubic yards FREE
Over 10 cubic yards $5/cubic yard

Appliances: $25/each


Bulk items should be placed in front of the residence separate from standard household waste collection receptacles and away from any obstructions including mailboxes, fire hydrants, utility poles, trees, etc.

Items should NOT be placed in the gutter or over any type of stormwater inlet.

Please ensure yard waste and household waste are in two separate piles. Failure to comply may result in cancellation of pickup.

Trees and limbs should be no larger than 8 feet long and 24 inches in diameter. Limbs must be in neatly stacked piles. *Limbs MUST be in a pile by themselves - no lumber, no landscaping timbers* 

Contractor-related tree cutting/construction debris should be removed and disposed of by the contractor, privately. The City of Lakeland will not collect waste generated from a contracted service.

Appliances containing refrigerants should be decommissioned prior to collection. The City will not collect dirt, shingles, large amounts of concrete/brick, or hazardous materials (gasoline, paints, solvents, cleaners, pesticides, chlorine, batteries, e-waste, etc.). Hazardous waste may be disposed of at the Shelby County Household Hazardous Waste Facility located at 6305 Haley Road (Phone: 901-222-7729).
