Residential Services and Billing

Every household receives a set of three 96-gallon carts for trash, recyclables, and green waste. Additional green waste and/or recycle carts are available for free. Additional trash carts cost $5.25 per container per month. Residents who are at least 62 years of age, the head of the household, and receive supplemental social security benefits are eligible for a 20 percent discount to their trash bills. In addition, disabled residents are eligible for “walk out” service where UPW’s drivers will move customers’ carts for collection.


Effective January 1, 2015, your trash charges will no longer be included with your water bill. CR&R Environmental Services will directly bill customers in advance. Residents will be billed bimonthly and commercial customers will be billed monthly. You can pay your bill by mail, online at  , or in-person at CR&R Environmental Services’ payment desk in City Hall.
