2019-20 Rates for Recycling & Garbage

Most Union City households pay for basic curbside garbage and recycling services through assessments that appear on a homeowner's property tax statement. Basic service is the weekly collection of a 35-gallon garbage cart, a 64-gallon recycling cart and a 96-gallon organics cart. Parcelized multi-family customers do not receive organics cart service and as a result are assessed at a lower rate
