Summer is gearing up and the Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County reminds people to be careful what items they put at the curb.
Pool chemicals, pesticides and propane tanks can’t go out with the regular garbage, the Authority says. Instead, they must be taken to one of the Authority’s Home Chemical and Recycling Centers, where they can be dropped off for free and will be recycled or disposed of. For hours of operation, go to http://www.swa.orgor call 561-697-2700 or 866-SWA-INFO.
