The Town has been in partnership with the Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County (SWA) since the early 1990s when SWA began a county-wide recycling program. In 2010, the Town reinforced that partnership through an interlocal agreement to be part of the SWA Recycling Revenue Share program. Since then, the Town has recycled more than 34,280 tons of blue and yellow bin recyclables for a revenue share return of more than $742,000, which goes back into the Town's general fund.
In Palm Beach County, there is a two bin recycling program with the items that can be recycled printed on the side of the bins and found online. Ultimately, residents should recycle all their paper and cardboard, and their plastic, glass and metal food containers that are 2 gallons or less. SAW offers a searchable database of items to help residents determine if an item is recyclable. Access this database by clicking here.
Should residents miss their recycling day, they can keep their recycle bins until the next week, or bring their bins to the North County Transfer Station (14185 N. Military Trail) where recyclables can be dropped off. There are also many community cardboard dumpster locations to take oversized and broken-down cardboard boxes. A full list can be found online.
