Trash & Recycling

 

 

Homes with street side trash cans or piled yard waste on non-collection days needlessly spoil everyone’s pleasant drive through our manicured community.  Residents of Meadow Lakes at Boca Raton are urged to keep trash cans, clutter, and yard waste out of sight until trash collection days. 

                                                                                                                                     

Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County provides curbside pick up of household trash, yard waste, and recyclables for Meadow Lakes at Boca Raton.

 

Household trash and other discarded items are picked up Monday and Thursday mornings. 

Place items street side after 6:00 pm the previous evening--or by 7:00 am on pick up day.  Household trash should be bagged and placed in trash cans to discourage overnight pests.  Trash cans/bags must weigh 50 pounds or less.  Over-sized items, such as furniture, washers, dryers, refrigerators, etc can be placed “loose” street side. 

 

Recyclable items are picked up on Monday mornings.

Place items street side in blue or yellow bins after 6:00 pm the previous evening—or by 7:00 am on pick up day.  The bins are provided by the county.  Refer to their website (see below) for further information regarding the “do’s and don’ts” of recycling, or to obtain bins.

 

Yard waste is picked up on Thursday mornings.

Place yard waste street side after 6:00 pm the previous evening—or by 7:00 am on pick up day.  Yard waste should be bagged.  Larger clippings and branches, up to 6’, may be piled street side.  Yard waste pick up is limited to 6 cubic yards of routine residential yard maintenance materials per week.  YARD WASTE GENERATED BY THE HOMEOWNER MUST NOT BE PLACED STREET SIDE EARLIER THAN 6:00 PM WEDNESDAY EVENING.  UNTIL THEN, YARD WASTE MUST BE TEMPORARILY STORED AT LEAST 15 FEET AWAY FROM THE STREET, PREFERABLY IN THE HOMEOWNER’S SIDE YARD OR BACK YARD.  LANDSCAPE CONTRACTORS SHOULD HAUL AWAY THEIR TRIMMINGS OR ABIDE BY THE ABOVE REQUIREMENTS.

 

TRASH CANS AND RECYCLE BINS SHOULD BE REMOVED FROM STREET SIDE BY 8:00 PM ON MONDAYS OR THURSDAYS AND STORED OUT-OF-SIGHT IN THE GARAGE OR BACK YARD.
