At Your Door Special Collection
Waste Management (WM) AT YOUR DOOR (AYD) Special Waste Collection
Effective June 1, 2019, WM offers a convenient service in Wheeling for residents with curbside collection to properly recycle household electronics and dispose of hazardous chemicals. This new program called At Your Door is safe, easy and environmentally responsible. The cost for the program is included in the monthly service rate and residents can utilize the program as many times during the year as necessary.
What materials are collected through the AYD Special Collection program?
The materials accepted through this program include, but may not be limited to, automotive products (antifreeze, batteries, brake fluid, motor oil & filters); garden chemicals (fertilizers, herbicides, pesticides, weed killers); paint products (paint, caulk, glue, stain, thinner, wood preservative); household cleaners (ammonia, cleaning products, rust remover, tile/shower and upholstery cleaners); items containing mercury (batteries, fluorescent lamps tubes, thermometers & thermostats); sharps (only if placed in sealed, rigid, puncture resistant containers); and electronics (computer, monitor, keyboards, television, DVD/CD/VCR player, cell phones, printer, microwave).
Ammunition, explosives, asbestos, tires, or any unlabeled or leaking materials will not be collected.
How do I schedule an AYD collection?
Residents must contact WM in one of two ways:
- Call (800) 449-7587 CST, M-F from 7 am to 7 pm.
- Go to www.WMATYOURDOOR.COM and complete a request form.
Please have the list of unwanted materials ready for their information.
What happens when I schedule a collection?
A collection kit will be sent to the resident via mail. The kit consists of a plastic bag, bag tie, survey card, labels, and an instruction sheet. Residents must follow the directions for appropriate packaging and collection. If the materials for collection are not labeled, leaking, or for some reason not acceptable, a door hanger will be left with further instructions.
When the package is ready for collection, place the package outdoors, near the side door, or by the garage, on the specific, designated collection date provided by WM. Residents do not need to be present during collections, and do not place the package near the curb or street.
