For 2017 the Town will issue an additional punch card to Union Vale residents when you purchase your Annual Recycle Center Permit. This is in lieu of clean up weekends. These punch cards will enable permit holders to dispose of 2 bulk items at their convenience without charge. Permit holders must present their numbered permit and matching numbered punch card when using this service. The punch cards are non-transferable. This procedure is expected to hold down costs at the Recycle Center while providing the convenience of bulk item disposal for permit holders.
After exhausting the 2 free bulk items on your punch card, Bulk Item Disposal is available for a fee. The following is a list of commonly accepted items (Please contact the Recycling coordinator for individual pricing of items not included in this list):
** PRICES SUBJECTED TO CHANGE**
All Metal Products are accepted at no charge
