[ARCHIVED] All SWA disposal facilities to close and no waste collection service in unincorporated PBC on Monday

2020 Tropical Storm Eta closure announcement

Palm Beach County is under a Tropical Storm Watch of Tropical Storm Eta, due to high winds and with heavy rains predicted to cause localized flooding. As a result, all Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County facilities and operations will be CLOSED Monday (11/09/2020).

There will be no garbage, recyclables, yard waste or bulk waste collection in unincorporated Palm Beach County, and no onsite drop-offs will be accepted until after the storm passes and it is safe to reopen facilities.

The SWA Greenway Trail System has closed as of 12 p.m. today (Saturday, 11/07/2020) until further notice.

Waste collection and disposal will continue as scheduled today (Saturday, 11/07/2020).

Those who live in a city should contact their municipality for information on the status of collection service in their community. A list of city contacts is available on the SWA website.

It is anticipated that all SWA facilities and operations will reopen Tuesday (11/10/2020) and waste collection in unincorporated Palm Beach County will resume as usual. This will depend on a post-storm evaluation of all SWA facilities for damage and accessibility, and is subject to change. The SWA will provide updates as necessary.

If curbside waste or yard waste is not picked up by the end of business today, (Saturday, 11/07/2020), residents should remove the material from the curb and secure it until after the storm passes.
