The City has contracted with Waste Management At Your Door, a special materials recycling program, to do a door-to-door recycling program for hazardous household chemicals again this year. To initiate a pick-up of your chemicals, visit Waste Management At Your Door website or call them at 800-449-7587. Their hours are Moday through Friday, 5 a.m. to 5 p.m. PST.
WM At Your Door will explain to you a number of hazardous waste pick-up options for you to consider and will help you decide which is the most economical for you. The total cost for these services range from $88.00 to $109.00. Residents are required to pay a co-payment in the amount of $20.00 upon pick-up of the chemicals by WM. The City will cover up to a maximum of $89.00 per household per year.
In the event that the total cost of a resident’s pick-up exceeds $109.00 (including the $20.00 co-pay plus the City’s contribution of up to $89.00), then the remaining amount due is the responsibility of the resident to pay in advance directly to WM.
Funds for this program are limited and are on a first-come-first-serve basis. In the event that all funds are utilized for the year, the program will be suspended. The City encourages residents to work with your neighbors to pool together your hazardous chemicals to maximize the funds available for the program.
