Special Collection Service
This service is offered throughout town to dispose of white goods and other bulky items that cannot go into dumpsters or be picked up by the regular garbage service. This service is only offered on Fridays, on a first come first serve basis. This service needs to be scheduled in advance by calling the Public Works Department at (561)838-5440.
This is a fee based service. Payment must be received at the time of pick-up with a check made out to the Town of Palm Beach. Payment can be made in advance at Town Hall by check only. The fee is based on the size of the load, currently the fee is $88 per one quarter of a truck load. Estimates can be given in advance of pick-up but need to be requested at least 2 days before the scheduled pick-up.
All pick-up items must be out in the open on the property not in the right-of-way (road or sidewalk).
