City Curbside Pickup Postponed

Event Rescheduled for December 3

The Fall Curbside Cleanup scheduled for the City of Lake Wales residents on Saturday, October 8, has been postponed and rescheduled for early December.

DO NOT place hazardous waste items, such as paint, batteries, chemicals, motor oil, antifreeze or asbestos materials.

DO NOT place construction debris, such as fences and remodel materials.

DO NOT place food waste on the street.

DO NOT attempt to help the Curbside Cleanup crew.
