Palm Beach County residents can start putting their recyclables to the curb on their regularly scheduled recycling day starting Wednesday, Sept. 13. The Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County’s recycling facility, the Recovered Materials Processing Facility, has regained power and will be open for receiving recyclables at 7 a.m.
Please place garbage and recyclables out to the curb by 6 a.m. on your regularly scheduled day.
However, vegetation collection WILL NOT resume as normal. In preparation for debris removal, residents are asked to help clean up our community by placing their waste and debris in three separate piles at the curb:
- Put garbage and recyclables out by 6 a.m. on your regularly scheduled day. These will be picked up first.
- Put all vegetation only in a second pile.
- And, put all other construction storm debris in a third pile.
Be sure to keep these three piles separate and away from:
- Power line equipment, poles, transformers, downed electrical wiring
- Water meters
- Fire hydrants or
- Storm drains

There is no rush for residents to get all their storm debris to the curb. Debris collection vehicles will begin collecting debris later this week and will make multiple passes until all debris is picked up.
The SWA urges all residents to be patient as collection efforts resume. It may be weeks before the first collection of vegetation and construction storm debris reaches everyone.
