MESSAGE FROM WASTE MANAGEMENT
Garbage and Recycling Services Amended Due to Hurricane Ian
In coordination with the Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County, Waste Management will resume normal collection operations on Thursday, September 29th.
In addition, crews will exercise extreme caution on each respective route – avoiding hazards and potentially hazardous (standing water, low hanging wires and branches) areas. Drivers will make notes of any areas that they are unable to be access and service.
PICKUP REMINDER: If your scheduled collection day is Thursday, WM will make the normal collections, as scheduled and follow suite with the successive collection days.
Due to some isolated areas that experienced extreme wind conditions, WM will make efforts to address with our bulk collection crews and partners- requesting residents to keep yard waste separate from other materials for best practice and ease of collection.
