The Town of Palm Beach reminds all residents and their landscape staff that from November 1st to April 30th yard trash from their property can be placed on the public right-of-way adjacent to their property only one (1) day prior to the day of collection. All other provisions of Section 102-45 of the Town Code of Ordinances such as allowable material size, prohibiting the use of plastic bags, and other requirements, remain in effect all year. Vegetation piles should be free of plastic bottles, dog waste bags, and any other unacceptable materials.
This seasonal “one day” set-out restriction during this time of year is a necessary public safety measure due to the increased traffic volume within the Town. This regulation also enhances the appearance of the Town during this time of year which is especially important to residents.
In the event yard trash is placed out for collection outside of the prescribed schedule, the property owner and/or the landscape company will be subject to pay a fine in the fee schedule set forth in the above-mentioned Ordinance and in accordance with the Public Works Right-of-Way Manual Chapter XII. For more detailed information, please refer to the Town’s website under Public Works, Trash Bureau - Yard Trash Collection Schedule. If you have any questions, please contact the Public Works Department at (561) 838-5440.
