Recycling is available to all Palm Beach County residents. With your help we have made Palm Beach County's recycling program one of the best in the country. If you currently recycle, we thank you. If you don't, we urge you to start.
Recycling preserves our natural resources and increases the life of our landfill. The Solid Waste Authority has adopted the state's 75% waste reduction goal and if we are going to continue to achieve this goal we need everyone to do their part.
