Residents of single-family homes and buildings with five or fewer units can safely dispose of common hazardous household waste and unwanted electronics without a trip to a collection site. At-your-door service is part of the regular weekly municipal garbage and recycling collection programs billed quarterly on water bills.
At-home pickup is offered for materials such as garden chemicals, automotive fluids, paint products and household cleaners as well as electronic items like televisions, computers, fax machines, printers and cell phones.
Residents can schedule the service online at www.wmatyourdoor.com, via email to email@example.com or with a toll-free call to 1.800.449.7587. Collection kits sent by U.S. Mail include instructions on how to package the materials and where to place them safely for pickup on the scheduled date.
Residents of multifamily buildings not served under the municipal refuse hauling program are encouraged to contact their building’s refuse service provider about recycling options.
