Household Hazardous Waste Collection
The City of Lockport has added At Your Door Special Collection® service provided by Waste Management, effective June 1, 2021. The program includes collection of many types of potentially hazardous and hard-to-recycle items from residential homes which are not permitted for disposal in regular refuse service collection.
The City published and collected responses in a Recycling Survey (2021) (PDF) toward the evaluation of the program. Upon approval of the program, Waste Management sent At Your Door Postcards to residential customers.
If you are looking to dispose of household hazardous waste, you can drop it off at the City of Naperville’s permanent Household Hazardous Waste drop-off facility.
