HOME COLLECTION PROGRAM FOR

HOUSEHOLD GENERATED SPECIAL MATERIALS


As part of the residential solid waste contract with Waste Management, effective immediately, you have a convenient new opportunity to dispose of your household generated special materials- safely, easily and responsibly. Introducing the At Your Door Special Collection Program, a residential service offered by Waste Management to provide year-round collections for you.


Managing Household Hazardous Waste

The best method of managing Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) is to prevent its generation in the first place. This involves selecting the least toxic item “to do the job” and buying only the minimum amounts necessary. Buying in large quantities is not a bargain if half of it has to be discarded. In the future, please consider buying environmentally friendly products.


Did You Know? Latex paint is not a hazardous waste. It can often be donated to community groups and other organizations for re-use. Please consider this option before disposal. Used motor oil is not hazardous, but may pollute our groundwater, waterways and soil if not properly managed. Many automotive station, auto parts and supply stores will accept used motor oil for recycling. Automotive batteries may be exchanged at the place of purchase. Many battery retailers offer recycling even if you are not purchasing a new battery. In some cases, there may be a charge. Some scrap yards will also purchase lead acid batteries. For more information on HHW, visit DEP at www.dep.pa.gov or at www.pa.gov
