State law prohibits the disposal of appliances and similar items within landfills and as such, cannot be collected by Waste Management. These items include:
Hot water heaters
Private haulers are available to collect such items. However, we would recommend that if you are replacing items such as these and are offered disposal of your old item, please utilize that service.
ComEd is available to remove working refrigerators and freezers (they may pay you a $25 credit toward your bill). A man named Chuck will pick up your appliance for $43 if it is placed outside of the house. Call him at 312-804-0571. There is a couple of days wait time.
