Upper Valley Waste Management Agency
The Upper Valley Waste Management Agency (UVA) was formed for the purpose of providing coordination of economical, regional waste management services, and meeting the requirements of the California Integrated Waste Management Act - namely to reduce the amount of "waste" currently being landfilled and instead keep valuable materials and resources within the economic cycle.
Recycling & Waste Reduction
The Recycling and Waste Reduction Team implements programs to reduce the volume of waste destined for landfills in order to conserve valuable natural resources and protect public health.
The Department of Water Resources (DWR) has a rebate program that provides a rebate for removing turf grass at California single-family residences.
