Geneva residents looking to safely dispose of motor oil, old paint cans or other hazardous household waste materials can now conveniently schedule to have them collected right at their front door.
The City has contracted with At Your Front Door Special Collection, a division of Waste Management, to provide free home pickup of unwanted hazardous household materials. Each household may schedule one collection per year as the City’s budget allows.
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 the link below.
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.
