Are there any exemptions to mandatory service?
There are limited circumstances by which other operators are allowed to provide service in the Town of Yountville. If a construction company is working at your residence or business, they may self-haul away debris from the construction site. However, the construction company is not allowed to retain a separate waste transport subcontractor to haul way the materials.
Requests for an exemption from mandatory waste and recycling service due to occasional use or generation of limited or low volume of waste and recyclables does not meet requirement for a waiver from service unless the following conditions are met:
- Unit is a granny or second unit on the same/adjacent parcel. One unit provides services for both.
- Unit or home on the same parcel(s) are owned by the same individual or company.
- Two or more units with a shared driveway share garbage service.
- Landscaping/ Irrigation only- no residential water service on the parcel.
The Town realizes that some properties may not need the green waste tote and/or the blue recycling tote and you can request a waiver of these totes by completing the application requesting consideration for exemption from recycling and yardwaste toter.
Residents who wish to apply for consideration for exemption from mandatory waste by self-hauling to a certified landfill may be made by filling out a request form. Those who self haul will need to provide receipts from a local certified landfill on a quarterly basis to maintain this exemption.
Please note that the brown tote is still mandatory.
Commercial businesses should call UVDS to further discuss their service needs and options including, additional recycling and food composting if applicable. For a better assessment, please call 707-963-7988.
