We have received an increasing number of complaints about “litter marketing” since residents have become aware that this Is illegal and contributes to the pollution of our water and damages our storm water system. “Litter marketing” is the practice of a few businesses of throwing ads etc. on lawns, many times in plastic bags that are a danger to wildlife and catch in stormwater drains etc and damage the stormwater collection system and our lakes and streams.
“Litter Marketing” is a violation of the City of Lakeland’s Storm Water Permit. We encourage residents to continue notifying City Hall of violations.
Violations (including the name of the business) should be reported to City Hall at 867-2717, (ask for Code Enforcement) or e-mail CityHall@lakelandtn.org or bring it by City Hall at 10001 Highway 70, Lakeland, Tennessee.
