No Trash Pick Up In Unincorporated PBC On Thanksgiving, Christmas

Live in unincorporated Palm Beach County? There are only two observed holidays during which there is no garbage service and all Solid Waste Authority facilities are closed. This year they are Thanksgiving (Thursday, Nov. 28) and Christmas (Wednesday, Dec. 25).

With the new collection service using standardized garbage carts, garbage will be collected outside of the cart on the Friday, Saturday and Monday following Thanksgiving, and from Dec. 26 through Jan. 1, under the new contract. Residents still should place all debris normally collected on these days curbside by 6 a.m.

While there will be trash pickup Christmas Eve, SWA administrative offices will be closed. However, a limited number of customer service team members will be available to assist residents. SWA customer service can be reached at (561) 697-2700.
