Residential customers receive many services that are “bundled” into the monthly service rate. The monthly rate is determined by the size of the garbage cart. These include:
Our residential services include a 3-cart system: garbage, mixed recycling, and compost (yard waste & food scraps) collected weekly.
Pricing is based on the size garbage cart you choose.
You get all three weekly services plus more for one monthly rate!
When you set up service, a customer service representative will review the cart and size options with you to help you select the appropriate size garbage/landfill cart for your needs. Services are billed four (4) times per year and include three (3) months of service.
Your gray* cart is hauled to Clover Flat Landfill and is not sorted for recyclables. Save resources and potentially save money by sorting materials properly!
Garbage/Landfill carts are available in 32, 64, 96-gallon sizes. If your cart is note big enough, you may upsize your garbage cart or add an additional cart for an increased monthly rate.
What’s the right size for you?
*We are transitioning our garbage carts from brown to gray to match the cart colors of other waste haulers.
Carts are serviced one time per week on a designated day depending on where you live.
Upper Valley Disposal & Recycling uses fully automated trucks to help improve collection efficiency and reduce costs. These trucks have a mechanical arm that reaches out and wraps around the carts, lifts them up, and empties the cart’s contents into the top of the truck. Because of this, it is essential they are placed out for collection correctly.
If you have extra garbage, recycling or green waste that does not fit inside your cart or bin, you must call or email the Upper Valley Disposal & Recycling office at least one (1) business day before your collection day.
On occasion, our driver might tag your cart/bin when a can is overloaded and the lid is not closed. A picture will be taken and a charge will be added to your account for extra bags and/or extra yards overfull for bins. If the container is so overfull that emptying it may result in materials littering the street, the cart/bin will not be emptied.

We make every effort to empty your cart(s) on your service day, but on occasion, we may miss you. We apologize if this happens.
To report a damaged or missing container, call our office or email us through our contact form.
Upper Valley Disposal will replace containers damaged from our equipment or that are broken due to normal wear and tear. Carts should last at least 7 years and bins should last about 10 years.
Containers should never be towed behind vehicles or dragged for long distances since this will damage the wheels and they will need to be replaced at a cost to the customer.
