Geneva providing front door household hazardous waste collection program

Sep 20, 2017 08:40AM ● Published by Ben Scott

Geneva residents will once again be able to safely dispose of household hazardous waste materials from the convenience of their front door after the City has joined forces with Kane County.

With the closest household hazardous waste collection site being in Naperville, the home collection program proved quite popular when Geneva worked with an independent contractor from 2013-16. In January, the company notified the City it would no longer be able to offer those services due to business restructuring.

The City began researching alternatives and became aware Kane County was submitting a bid to conduct its own household hazardous waste program. Through a collaborative effort, the City was able to reach an intergovernmental agreement with the County to expand the program into Geneva effective immediately.

Residents can schedule a collection by calling U.S. Ecology at 866-373-8357 between 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. Monday to Friday or by emailing curbside@usecology.com. Once an appointment has been finalized, a 30-gallon bag and kit with labels and instructions will be mailed to the resident. The company will call the resident the day before collection with a reminder to place the full bag on the porch or driveway for pickup.

Residents can schedule one home collection per year to dispose of paint, pesticides, fertilizers, household chemicals, cleaners, auto fluids, batteries, fluorescent lights and more. Kane County, who will be administering the program, has a full list of accepted items on its website at www.countyofkane.org/recycling.

The program is for residential customers only, and no business materials will be collected.

For more information, visit the City’s website at www.geneva.il.us or call the Geneva Public Works Department at 630-232-1501.
