Upper Valley Disposal & Recycling provides a gray cart for the weekly roadside collection of garbage (non-recyclable and non-compostable) items.
All materials in the gray carts go directly to Clover Flat Landfill and are not sorted for recyclables.
As of January 1, 2022, you must sort your recyclables and organic waste including paper, cardboard, yard waste, food scraps, and food soiled paper from the garbage. It’s the law!
Put only garbage into your gray (or brown) cart. Please do not put recyclables or compost materials in the landfill cart. Do not overfill; make sure that the lid closes securely when placed at the roadside for collection.
*Please note, the brown cart will be changing to gray in the near future due to a new law SB 1383, that mandates standardizing the colors of containers for garbage, recycling, and organic materials.
To see available cart sizes, set out rules and how to stop, start or change service, visit the Residential Services page.
Only place materials that cannot be reused, composted or recycled in your trash.
If you separate your waste properly, you may be able to save money by getting a smaller garbage cart. Save resources and potentially save money by sorting materials properly!
Below are a few of the things that belong in your garbage/landfill cart. This list is not exhaustive.
*Household Hazardous Waste (HHW) items such as fluorescent light bulbs (CFLs) or tubes, batteries, paint, pesticides, cleaning products or electronics should be taken to the County of Napa HHW Facility.
We make every effort to emptying your container(s) on your service day, but on occasion, we may miss you. We apologize if this happens.
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.
