Who picks up my trash?

The Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County does not pick up waste or recycling at the curb. We do, however, contract waste hauling services for unincorporated Palm Beach County. 

Unincorporated Palm Beach County is divided into 6 service areas (PDF), each of which is awarded to an individual hauler that has the exclusive right to provide service in accordance with the Service Guidelines in their contract. 

For questions or concerns about service provided in your area, call the Solid Waste Authority Customer Information Services Department at 561-697-2700, or 866-SWA-INFO toll-free from southern and western Palm Beach County. 

If you live in a municipality, please contact your municipality or service provider regarding collection concerns or for general information. Listing of service providers for Palm Beach County municipalities»
