Take our Electronics and Household Hazardous Waste Survey

The Village of Lemont has been researching electronic and hazardous waste recycling options for residents due to the expense, inconvenience and limited amount of facilities accepting items.

We are currently considering a new program with Waste Management and would like your feedback on this expanded household and electronic recycling program. The “At Your Door” program allows residents to simply call the service to schedule a collection, then, on your provided collection day, you place your items near your front door step or garage. Many items are accepted including electronics and TV’s, household chemicals, automotive products, paint products, garden chemicals, universal materials, and swimming pool chemicals. The cost of this service upgrade through Waste Management is $1.25 per month, with unlimited recycling pickups. The program is not an opt-in program, and all residents would be required to be enrolled in the program for a period of two years, at which time the service would be re-evaluated. The additional charge would appear on all Waste Management customer bills.

The survey will end on Friday, December 16, 2016, and residents will be notified by Waste Management if the program is implemented.
