Education / Tours

Due to the dynamic situation around COVID-19, and updated health and governmental official guidance, the SWA has cancelled all in-person educational programming, including tours and field trips.

However, there are many ways to share information about Recycling Right and protecting the natural environment.

Getting Schooled by the SWA


The SWA is going live to give you an inside look at what goes into managing Palm Beach County's waste.

Every week day at 11 a.m., we will be conducting webinars to show you our renewable energy facility, how to recycle right, and how industry and nature can coexist. We will also be sharing stories for the little ones, and reviewing some of the most often asked recycling questions.

The webinar links will take you to a registration page and once you're registered, you will receive a link in your email to join the session. You will also get a reminder email 24 hours before the session.
