Items such as refrigerators (doors removed), hot water heaters (drained), and dishwashers may be disposed of by calling Waste Management/Advanced Disposal at 630-587-8282 at least 1 day prior to service. The call alerts the hauler that there is an item which likely exceeds the normal 50-pound limit so they can schedule a different truck for collection. Each appliance requires one refuse sticker.
Disposal of water softeners: Unit must be completely drained of water from tanks, and all salt must be removed from the unit. Call Waste Management/Advanced Disposal at least 1 day prior to service to schedule a special collection, which still requires only one refuse sticker.
