Lakeland residents are encouraged to avoid leaving debris (leaves, grass, tree debris for pickup, etc.) in the street. This is not only dangerous, but also creates substantial damage to streets and drainage facilities.
Debris in the street is also a violation of the Lakeland Ordinances and the Clean Water Act and also could create legal liability for residents in the event of property damage or injury resulting from debris in the street.
We appreciate your cooperation in keeping Lakeland clean!
Such items are especially dangerous to bicyclists and pedrisitians who are watching for cars, but not for branches, construction material or other debris in the street!
