While Hurricane Threatens

Palm Beach County is in the cone of uncertainty for Tropical Storm Dorian, this week is NOT the time to do major yard work or begin construction projects.

Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County asks all county residents to:

  1. Refrain from cutting down whole trees or doing major yard or construction projects until after the storm passes
  2. Not place any debris at the curb after a Hurricane Watch or Hurricane Warning is issued

Excess yard waste placed curbside may put a strain on collection and disposal efforts, and large piles of new vegetation trimming and construction debris may be left at the curb should the storm impact our area. Mass cutting places a tremendous burden on the collection and disposal processes and there is not enough equipment or manpower to handle the additional material before the storm makes landfall.

The SWA is working with the Palm Beach County Division of Emergency Management Operations Center to monitor the storm’s potential path to make a determination on any facility closures or cancelled garbage, recyclables and yard waste collections in the unincorporated parts of the county. But, we need the help of every resident for the efficient removal of debris leading up to and after the storm.

For additional information on debris collection in unincorporated parts of Palm Beach County, contact:
SWA Customer Information Services
 561-697-2700 or 866-792-4636 (toll-free)
