Residents Have Access to a Home Pickup Program for Household Hazardous Waste

As part of the residential solid waste and recycling contract with Waste Management, you have a convenient opportunity to dispose of your Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) safely, easily and responsibly. At Your Door Special CollectionSM is a residential service offered by WM to provide year-round HHW collections for you.

HOW DOES IT WORK?

1. To participate, you must set up a collection appointment

There are three ways to schedule a collection:

The Call Center operators will guide you through the steps toward a safe and successful collection. You will be asked several questions, including your address and the type and amount of materials available for collection. You will be provided a convenient collection date and information about where to place the HHW kit for collection. A kit will be sent to your home in plenty of time for you to gather and pack your materials.

 

2. Preparing for collection

The HHW kit includes a program instruction sheet and other items to help pack and secure household hazardous waste. All materials such as gasoline, poisons, pesticides and aerosols, must be placed into the kit. Other items may be placed outside the kit.

 

3. HHW material is collected

On the scheduled date, the customer service technician will collect materials directly from your home. They will sort and pack the materials for proper transportation, recycling and disposal. Participants will receive a postage-paid survey card to complete and mail back to help track the program.

 

4. You have more material than will fit into the kit?

Don’t worry! This service is available year-round. Just schedule another collection once you have more material to dispose of.

 

The Call Center operators are available from Monday – Friday 8:00 AM – 5:00 PM Eastern time. Leave a message after hours, weekends and holidays. You can also e-mail the Call Center: atyourdoor@wm.com.
