Waste Management's At Your Door Special CollectionSM provides Robinson residents with front-porch service to collect the difficult, sometimes hazardous, and hard-to-recycle items that almost every household accumulates. Waste Management will collect the pesticides, household chemicals, sharps, electronic waste, batteries, fluorescent lamps, automotive waste products (including oil), paints, thinners, and dozens of other items that don't belong with your recyclables or regular curbside waste pickup.
The At Your Door Special CollectionSM program is available all year long, so Robinson residents can use the service following a renovation, home clean-up, or whatever is most convenient. Arranging a pick up at the doorstep is as easy as making a toll-free call to 1-800-449-7587 or by email. You can also set up a pick up through Waste Management’s website by clicking here.
