RESPONSIBLE DISPOSAL OF BATTERIES AND MORE
Did you know you can have batteries, cans of old paint, unwanted electronics and more picked up and taken away for safe disposal at no extra cost to you? Simply order a free kit from Waste Management and schedule a home collection. They’ll do the rest!
This program is in place to help ensure items that can be harmful to the environment or dangerous inside collection trucks are responsibly disposed. For example, batteries (both the AA and automotive 12-volt kind), paint and toxic chemicals (such as toilet bowl cleaners and engine oil), electronics and CLF bulbs should NOT go into your trash or recycling bins at home. They require special handling.
AT-HOME COLLECTION IS FREE
A list of accepted items can be found at WMAtYourDoor.com. When you’re ready, schedule an at home collection online or call 1-800-449-7587. From there, WM’s At Your Door Special Collection® service will conveniently and safely collect eligible batteries, electronics, and more.
This service is included in your waste bill, so schedule your FREE pickup today.
