Boynton Beach UTILITIES to Flush WATER Lines with Chlorine

BOYNTON BEACH, FL (July 7, 2015) --- Boynton Beach Utilities will temporarily modify the disinfection process utilized to treat its drinking water from July 20 through August 9. Customers may notice a slight chlorine taste, or odor, in their tap water. These temporary conditions will not cause adverse health effects. Those sensitive to the taste, or odor, of chlorine, can place an open container of drinking water in the refrigerator for a few hours to allow the chlorine to dissipate. Users of home dialysis machines, owners of tropical fish and managers of stores, and restaurants with fish and shellfish holding tanks are advised to seek professional advice as the method for removing chlorine residuals differs from removing chloramine residuals from tap water. This is an annual preventative maintenance process in order to maintain the City’s high standard of clean water distribution. Please call 561.742.6964 for further information.

Christmas Tree Disposal Right At Your Curb

The holiday decorations are coming down and it is time to dispose of your real Christmas tree. The Solid Waste Authority of Palm Beach County (SWA) wants to remind its customers with curbside service in unincorporated parts of the county about the proper disposal of Christmas trees.

Like with any other yard waste, just place your live Christmas tree curbside on your regular yard waste collection day. As a general rule, Christmas trees up to 8 feet long and weighing no more than 50 pounds can be placed at the curb whole. Trees larger than 8 feet long should be cut in half. Remember to remove all of decorations, lights and tinsel before placing your Christmas tree at the curb.

The collected Christmas trees are treated like any other vegetative waste.

Residents who live in multi-family communities with dumpster services should contact their home owner’s association or property management company directly for disposal procedures. Those residents who live in one of the 38 municipalities should contact their municipality directly for their Christmas tree collection procedures.
