WOODLAND, Calif. — Woodland residents! The city wants to help you step up your eco-friendly game. Free recycling bins and food scrap kitchen pails are available to all residents so they can recycle and compost more conveniently. 

All while helping divert waste from landfills! 

The bins, provided by City of Woodland Environmental Services, will be available starting on Monday, July 29 and can be picked up Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the City of Woodland Municipal Service Center at 655 N. Pioneer Ave. Bins are first come, first served, and available while supplies last.

Per family: Each single-family household can receive up to two 10-gallon or two 6-gallon recycling bins, or one of each, and a 2-gallon food scrap kitchen pail. Food scrap pails are not available to multi-family households (apartments), as organics services are not available at apartment complexes at this time.
