WILTON MANORS, Fla., Oct. 11, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- On Saturday, October 1, 2016, the City of Wilton Manors implemented a new program called, "Waste Management's At Your Door Special Collection." Through this service, Wilton Manors' residents in single-family homes will now have the option to have their household hazardous waste collected at their homes on the third Wednesday of each month.
Hazardous materials include products that are hard to recycle or cannot be disposed of in the regular trash such as garden chemicals, electronics, batteries, fluorescent lamps, motor oil, antifreeze, and more.
This new collection service replaces the City's annual drop-off event, which was previously held in February.
"Wilton Manors continually strives to accommodate our residents by offering convenient programs, such as Waste Management's At Your Door Special Collection service," said Mayor Gary Resnick. "This is yet another reason why Life's Just Better Here."
There are three easy ways residents can schedule a collection of household hazardous materials through this new program:
- Go online via www.WMATYourDoor.com.
- Call 1-(800)-449-7587 (Monday-Friday, 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. ET)
- E-mail via AtYourDoor@WM.com.
