Earlier this year, the CRA purchased 44 new stainless steel receptacles to replace the old square shaped maroon cans that have been in the City for over 11 years. Funding to purchase the new receptacles was obtained through the Palm Beach County Solid Waste Authority’s (SWA) Blighted and Distressed Grant Program. This is the second year in a row that the CRA received grant funding from the SWA. In 2016, the CRA received funding to make significant exterior improvements to the former shuffleboard court property (now known as HATCH 1121).
The CRA would like to thank the hard working Staff at the Lake Worth Public Works Department for expeditiously installing all the trash and recycling receptacles.
Over the next few years, the CRA and City will be working to replace all public trash receptacles and benches throughout the downtown business core.
