Green Waste Recycling

Organics Collection Now Includes Green Waste and Food Waste!

You can put food scraps and food-soiled paper in the same cart as your green waste and lawn clippings (the one with the brown lid). Separating food scraps and food-soiled paper for composting is easy and helps Woodland meet our goals to reduce the amount of waste headed to the landfill.
