Waste Management's At Your Door Special Collection Service provides Seguin residents with front-porch service to collect the difficult, sometimes hazardous, and hard-to-recycle items that almost every household accumulates. Waste Management will collect the pesticides, household chemicals, sharps, electronic waste, batteries, fluorescent lamps, automotive waste products (including oil), paints, thinners, and dozens of other items that don't belong with your recyclables or regular curbside waste pickup.


Grant funding received by the City of Seguin to provide free household hazardous waste collection to residents ended on February 21, 2021. The City hopes to receive additional grant funding for this program in the future.

  • A helpful Waste Management representative answers your questions.
  • You will then be provided a date when a customer service technician will arrive to remove the waste. It is not necessary for anyone to be at home.
  • A collection kit for the waste will be mailed to you. The kit includes a heavy-duty plastic bag, labels, simple instructions, and a zip tie for closing the bag.
  • Gather your hazardous household waste and place the materials in the bag on the front porch or near the garage (never at the curb.)
  • On the established pickup date, At Your Door technicians will arrive, remove and secure the waste safely, then drive to the next location.
  • Once the waste is collected, Waste Management technicians work to responsibly manage the waste and recycle as much as possible, typically up to 75% and at times more than 75%.
