Holiday Collection Schedule

Curbside trash collectionUnincorporated Palm Beach County residents receive regular collection service on all holidays, with the exception of Thanksgiving Day and Christmas Day. If your service falls on one of these holidays, your items will be collected on the next scheduled service day (please see collection schedule below).

Municipal Residents should contact their municipality for holiday collection information. As a service to municipal residents, we have compiled a list of municipal contacts.

Excess Garbage Collection

SWA understands that there can be an increase of garbage around the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays, and so it has allowed for residents to place excess garbage at the curb for pick up on the regular collection days that fall between November 26 and 29 and between December 26 and January 1. Residents should note that excess garbage placed outside of a standardized garbage cart must be properly secured in plastic bags (oversized or excess carboard boxes may also be placed beside the yellow recycle bin for collection). All debris should still be placed curbside by 6 a.m. on the scheduled collection day.
