Welcome to Episode 10 of the Jupiter Farms Residents Podcast and we are lucky to have Becky Robinson and Willie Puz from the Solid Waste Authority (SWA) on the show to be pelted by all our questions about the new solid waste collection contract. There are some changes to the way things have traditionally been done so this is one of our more necessary and helpful podcasts to date. We specifically focus how things change in our area so listen closely – you will be quizzed on your knowledge of the new rules! For any other questions, concerns call SWA at 561-697-2700 or find them online at www.SWA.org
