Special Collection Service
Special Collection (Pick-up) Service
Special Collection (Pick-up) Service is offered throughout the Town to dispose of white goods and other bulk items that cannot be placed in dumpsters or for regular garbage service. Service is only offered on Fridays and is on a first-come first-serve basis. Service needs to be scheduled in advance by contacting the Public Works Department at (561) 838-5440.
Special Pick-ups are a fee-based service. Payment must be received at the time of pick-up by check, payable to the Town of Palm Beach. Payment can be made in advance at Town Hall by check only or a check can be left with the items the day of pick-up. The fee is based on the size of the load, and fee rates are priced based on one quarter (1/4) truck loads. 1/4 Truck = $105.60, 1/2 Truck = $211.20, 3/4 Truck = $316.80, Full Truck = $420. If you would like, estimates are available and can be made in advance of pick-up scheduling, however it is to be requested at least two (2) days prior to the scheduled pick-up date.
All items must be outside of the dwelling/garage, and not in the right-of-way (road or sidewalk). If the location is a condominium, the management of the building will designate the outdoor area for placement for service, most often by the dumpsters. Staff is not permitted in enclosed structures (i.e., homes, garages, apartments, etc.).
