Free Hazardous Waste Pick-Up Available to City Residents
SEGUIN, Texas – Do you have old motor oil taking up space in your garage? What about electronics or cans of paint? Ready to finally get rid of household hazardous waste collecting dust, that you can’t throw in your garbage can? Stress no more – the City of Seguin has an easy, safe, and convenient solution for city residents!
The City of Seguin was recently awarded a grant through the Alamo Area Council of Governments for a Household Hazardous Waste Collection Program. This service is provided through Waste Management's At Your Door Special Collection program. It provides Seguin residents with a way to collect the difficult, sometimes hazardous, and hard-to-recycle items that almost every household accumulates.
Anyone who lives in the city limits can participate in the At Your Door Special Collection Program. Arranging a collection at the doorstep is as easy as making a toll-free call to 1-800-449-7587. Pick-ups can also be scheduled online through Waste Management’s website at wmatyourdoor.com/residential.
Waste Management will collect the pesticides, household chemicals, sharps, electronic waste, including televisions, batteries, fluorescent lights, automotive waste products (including oil), paints, thinners, and dozens of other items that don't belong with your recyclables or regular curbside waste pickup.
For a complete list of accepted items, visit wmatyourdoor.com or call 1-800-449-7587. Information is also available on the City’s website at https://bit.ly/SeguinHHW
