Additional waste collection services to include Household Hazardous Wastes and Electronic Wastes for LMT residents!

Residents will be receiving a flyer directly from WM detailing the new door to door HHW program that is starting this week (11/11/19).

**2 important things to remember when using this service:
 

The scheduling for collection of the HHW/E-waste is a totally separate service from your normal trash & recycling collection and your scheduled pick up bulk items. 
 

HHW/E-waste cannot be placed curbside ever!

We were lucky to have the same rate of $72 per quarter for the last 15 years, but unfortunately, we could no longer keep at that low rate. There is an increase to $90 per quarter due to rising costs for trash, recycling and other sanitation related expenditures such as the cost to bill and administer refuse services, curbside leaf collection, and yard waste recycling site services, plus related equipment expenses, etc.
