Celebrating 40 Years

When the Solid Waste Authority (SWA) hired our first employee in 1975, Palm Beach County's population was 475,000, a gallon of gas cost $.57 and the idea of the "sanitary landfill" was less than 20 years old.

Needless to say, a lot has changed in the 40 years that the SWA has been serving Palm Beach County.
