[ARCHIVED] Due to Tropical Storm Dorian, Please Refrain from All Major Debris Causing Projects

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

· Refrain from cutting down whole trees or doing major yard or construction projects until after the storm passes 

· 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. We are monitoring the storm’s potential path to make a determination on any facility closures or cancelled garbage, recyclables and yard waste collections in the Village of Palm Springs. 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, contact SWA Customer Information Services at 561-697-2700 or 866-792-4636 (toll-free), or visit
