Household Hazardous Waste Disposal
Lombard is fortunate to be located near a regional collection site. This site is located at:
Household Hazardous Waste Drop-off
Naperville HHW Facility
156 Fort Hill Drive (immediately north of Naperville Public Works at 180 Fort Hill Drive)
Items are accepted Saturdays & Sundays (except Holidays) 9AM-2PM
Residents may dispose of LED and CFL bulbs as normal trash. However, CFLs may optionally be disposed as HHW at a disposal location such as a Home Depot store (see https://www.dupageco.org/OnlineRecyclingGuide/) or the Naperville HHW site.
Residents may dispose of CO detectors and smoke alarms as normal trash after removing the battery. However, they may optionally be returned to the manufacturer since most include a small amount of radioactive material and are not acceptable as HHW. Look at the back of the unit and the manufacturer’s website for recycling/disposal instructions. One such website is https://support.firstalert.com/s/article/detector-disposal.
Waste Management’s At Your Door Special Collection
As an alternative to the HHW site in Naperville, Lombard residents may also utilize Waste Management’s At Your Door Special Collection (click here to see a short video explaining the program). Per the Village’s Contract, Waste Management is providing 180 no-cost pick-ups annually for Household Hazardous Waste and other hard-to-dispose-of items, as listed here. Residents make arrangements directly with Waste Management and requests beyond the first 180 within a calendar year are subject to a fee. Scheduling begins each year on January 1st. It is suggested that residents should coordinate with neighbors to combine small volumes into a larger amount for collection. Visit www.wmatyourdoor.com, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 800-449-7587 for more information and to request a service.
