As of 2012, many electronics have been banned from Illinois landfills and waste haulers are no longer able to accept them in residential curbside waste programs. Homewood Disposal has developed a program for current residential customers to schedule an e-waste pickup.
Schedule your pickup and then simply place your electronics curbside near your trash containers. We’ll send an additional truck to your location for removal and proper recycling.
Some items you need to dispose of can’t be accepted by Homewood Disposal for various reasons, such as landfill restrictions.
Currently, these “hard to handle items” cannot be accepted, including: plastic bags, electronics, hazardous material, propane tanks and batteries. We do offer alternative removal options for these items.
