How big are the new garbage carts? Can I choose a different size?

The SWA would expect the majority of customers in unincorporated Palm Beach County would prefer the 96 gallon cart based on the average weekly volumes reported by the current service providers. SWA staff will be working with gated or HOA communities within unincorporated Palm Beach County to identify the cart size preference (48, 65 or 96 gallon cart) for the majority of the residents.

For the first 90 days of the contract, there will be no cart exchange period. After that, exchanges will be made on a case-by-case basis.
