Geneva residents looking to safely dispose of motor oil, old paint cans or other hazardous household waste materials can conveniently schedule to have them collected right at their front door.
The City has once again contracted with At Your Door Special Collection, a division of Waste Management, to provide free home pickup of unwanted hazardous household materials. Each household may schedule one free collection per year, and the program will continue to operate until reaching the City’s budget allotment.
Residents will be able to dispose of paint products, pesticides, motor oil, household batteries, automotive products, garden chemicals, household cleaners, fluorescent tubes and more. A complete list of accepted items can be found on the City’s website at www.geneva.il.us.
Liquid materials must be in a sealed, labeled container that is 5 gallons or less.
Biological waste, appliances, ammunition, asbestos, tires, medicines, swimming pool chemicals or radioactive materials will not be accepted. The program is for residential customers only, and no business materials will be collected.
Residents can schedule a collection by calling 800-449-7587 between 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday to Friday, making an online appointment at www.WMAtYourDoor.com or by emailing AtYourDoor@WM.com.
Once an appointment has been scheduled, a 30-gallon kit bag, labels and instructions will be mailed to the homeowner.
