Clean-Up Programs

Upper Valley Disposal & Recycling offer many ways for single family residents and multifamily dwellings and tenants to dispose of unwanted items that cannot go in the curbside carts/bins.  If your items are still useful, we suggest that you try and find a reuse center that will take it as a donation before calling UVD&R to schedule a collection. 

This includes Bulky Item Collection, Motor Oil & Filters Collection, and Ink Cartridge Mail-in Recycling.

Bulky Item Collection

The Bulky Item Collection program is available to all single family residents and multifamily tenants, including mobile home residents, who have their own service and multifamily residents who have their own service and are responsible for the bill.  

Multifamily Dwellings with shared service and the property pays the bill are allowed 2 collective collections per year at no charge for the apartment building. Once these are used, items can be collected for a fee per item. The property manager must call to request a collection for the property.  Collections cannot be requested by individual tenants.

If you are a single family resident, mobile home tenant or multifamily tenant with your own service and you pay your own bill, you can email us through the inquiry form or call the office (707) 963-7988 to request a bulky item collection.

Used Motor Oil & Filters Collection

Did you know that used motor oil never wears out? It just gets dirty and can be recycled, cleaned, and used again. Recycling used motor oil conserves a natural resource (oil) and is also good for the environment. Motor oil poured onto the ground, into storm drains, or tossed into trash cans (even in a sealed container) can contaminate and pollute the soil, groundwater, streams, and rivers. It’s also illegal. Recycling your used motor oil reduces this pollution threat.

Residents can call our office at (707) 963-7988 and request a “Used Oil Recovery Kit” at no cost. Each kit contains: one (1) reusable 2.5 gallon plastic jug and one (1) plastic resealable bag for the oil filter. Once you have your kit, call the office so a work order can be made to collect the oil and filter on your collection day. Without a work order, the used oil & filter cannot be collected.
