2023 Dual Stream Recycling Guide


Village Recycling Service

Participants in the recycling program sort out recyclable items, which reduces the amount of garbage we produce as a Village. Learn more about Dual Stream Recycling here: ucrra.org/recycling or view their handy: Dual Stream Visual Guide.

Curbside pick up of recyclable materials is a complimentary service available to all Village residents and businesses, regardless of whether they pay to participate in the Village garbage service.
