Solid Waste Authority Asks Residents To Delay Yard Trimming 

And Securely Tie Garbage Bags

 

While garbage, recycling and bulk waste remain on schedule, the Solid Waste Authority has requested that Palm Beach County residents delay major yard trimming until May. Doing so will allow waste haulers to focus on the increase in home garbage and bulk items.

 

Since the start of the safer at home order in response to the ongoing health crisis, curbside vegetation collection is reported to be up more than 20 percent in some areas. With the stay at home order issued through April, it is anticipated this percentage will go up.

 

Residents are also asked to securely tie all garbage in plastic garbage bags. This additional precautionary measure includes securing all personal hygiene products, used tissues, paper towels, sanitary wipes, face masks, gloves, and similar items in plastic garbage bags, as it is not known whether the waste was handled by someone who is sick, caring for a sick family member or healthy. Garbage bags should be tied securely for disposal so waste workers do not come in contact with any potentially virus-contaminated waste.
