The Solid Waste Authority is a dependent special district under the Palm
Beach County Commission that was created by the State of Florida in
1974. Its responsibilities include the disposal of all solid waste in
Palm Beach County and the collection of solid waste in the
unincorporated areas (approx. 50%). It utilizes a fully integrated solid
waste management system including Waste-to-Energy, Recycling, Composting
and Bio-Solids Pelletization and Landfilling. It currently operates a
2,000 ton per day (tpd) Waste-to-Energy Facility and is under contract
