Home Generated Special Material Management Programs
At Your Door Special CollectionSM is a service provided for residents to remove difficult, sometimes hazardous and hard-to-recycle items. As North America's leading environmental solutions company, Waste Management makes it easy for residents to dispose of these items by collecting these items- safely,easily and responsibly.
Waste Management’s At Your Door Special Collection service collects home generated special materials directly from residences within your community. Experience is key– the program has served hundreds of thousands of homes since 1995 and currently manages programs for dozens of municipalities in many states.
Household generated special materials (formerly called HHW or Household Hazardous Waste) include items such as automotive products, garden chemicals, paint products, household chemicals, universal materials and electronics.
This program is not your usual special material collection program, because it is focused on recycling most of the materials collected. Communities across the country can take advantage of Waste Management's expertise to pick up and recycle a category of recyclables generally overlooked by other programs.
