[ARCHIVED] SWA adds temporary phone lines for hurricane debris information

The Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County has implemented extra phone lines for customer inquiry in the wake of Hurricane Irma. If you have questions about garbage collection, please call one of the following numbers:

  • 561-236-6687
  • 561-512-8565
  • 561-236-9780

The SWA is aware of the situation across the county, so there is no need to call to report issues.

Be aware that garbage service only is resuming today in Palm Beach County. No recyclables will be collected until further notice. Palm Beach county residents should put their garbage out on their regularly scheduled collection day by 6 a.m.

The landfill and the waste-to-energy facilities are open for regular business hours. All SWA transfer stations, including the South County Transfer Station, 1901 SW 4th Ave. in Delray Beach, are open and can receive waste.

The SWA urges all residents to be patient as collection efforts resume. It may be weeks before the first collection of vegetation and construction storm debris reaches everyone. Visit for more information.

NOTE: There will be no reimbursement provided to any individual resident or homeowner association who hires a private contractor to remove and dispose of their vegetation and construction storm-related debris.
