Palm Beach Daily News - - TODAY - By JAN SJOSTROM

Palm Beach has re­sumed veg­e­ta­tive de­bris and yard waste col­lec­tion, ac­cord­ing to a town alert. But be­cause of the quan­tity of de­bris, it might take weeks to clear it away, town of­fi­cials said. The town is col­lect­ing garbage on the nor­mal sched­ule. Re­cy­cling has been sus­pended un­til fur­ther no­tice due to a power out­age at Solid Waste Author­ity fa­cil­i­ties.

Be­cause of the storm, size re­stric­tions are be­ing mod­i­fied to al­low larger di­am­e­ter trees limbs and trunks. But the length of veg­e­ta­tive de­bris can­not ex­ceed 6 feet. Nor­mal de­bris pile size and lo­ca­tion re­stric­tions ap­ply.

The town cau­tions res­i­dents not to place veg­e­ta­tive de­bris near over­head power or util­ity lines, storm drains, fire hy­drants, wa­ter me­ters, mail­boxes, fences or other ob­sta­cles. Con­struc­tion and de­mo­li­tion de­bris is the re­spon­si­bil­ity of prop­erty own­ers or their con­trac­tors.
