Weekend Trash, Garbage Pickup Services Suspended Due to Tropical Storm Isaias

Post Date:07/30/2020 3:51 PM

WEST PALM BEACH, FLA. (July 30, 2020) – As the City of West Palm Beach continues to monitor Tropical Storm Isaias, the City’s Department of Public Works Sanitation Division has suspended trash and garbage pickup for Saturday, August 1 and Sunday, August 2. These services are scheduled to resume on Monday. Special pickups remain suspended until further notice.  Special pickups include billable customer service requests for yard waste piles exceeding 18 ft. x 4 ft. x 4 ft. or bulk removal in excess of three items.


The Public Works Department kindlys ask that customers follow these important tips should a major weather event impact our community:

  • Please refrain from doing any major yard work until after a storm has passed.
  • Place out only what is necessary so as not to strain our collection efforts.
  • Do not place any debris at the curb after a tropical storm watch/warning or hurricane watch/warning has been issued and before a storm impacts our community. If we have already conducted your normal residential yard waste pickup for this week and you leave additional yard waste prior to your next scheduled pickup, we will not be able to pick it up until after the storm passes.
  • Please keep storm drains clean to minimize flooding. Large piles of new vegetation trimming might clog storm drains.

For more information, please call the City of West Palm Beach Department of Public Works Sanitation Division at (561) 822-2075 (TTY: 800-955-8771) or email
