Household Hazardous Waste
Front Door Collection

In 2017, the City of Geneva has partnered with Kane County to reinstitute at home collection pickups for household hazardous waste after the previous City program with an independent vendor was ended earlier this year.

Residents can schedule a collection by calling U.S. Ecology at 866-373-8357 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday to Friday or by emailing . Once an appointment has been finalized, a 30-gallon bag and kit with labels and instructions will be mailed to the resident. The company will call the resident the day before collection with a reminder to place the full bag on the porch or driveway for pickup.

Find more information about the new program.
