We provide most Union City households with three bins: a 35-gallon garbage bin (blue), a 64-gallon recycling bin (brown), and a 96-gallon organics bin for food scraps and yard waste (green). Collection trucks empty the carts on a weekly schedule (each home will be serviced on the same day each week). Union City homeowners pay for collection services through special assessments that appear on their annual property tax statement.
By sorting your green waste, trash, and recycling at home you help the environment, ease the strain on landfills, and reduce contamination.
