Recycling is a vital part of today’s society. Not only does it prevent tons of waste from going to landfills, it also creates sustainable opportunities in our community. Do your part to help the environment and remember to reduce, reuse, and recycle.
Examples of Woodland's Recycling
Here are some examples of what Woodland is doing to help the environment through recycling and using recycled materials:
- City of Woodland Offices Participate in Desk-Side Recycling (PDF)

Recycling is just one of the 3 Rs in the Reduce-Reuse-Recycle loop, and while it plays a key role in helping the environment, preventing waste from the start is just as important.
Curbside recycling is a mandatory part of Woodland’s residential waste program.
Businesses and multi-family properties that reduce waste are regarded more favorably by customers, the public, and their own employees.
The City's Construction and Demolition (C&D) Debris Recycling Ordinance was established to help the City comply with AB 939 which requires local governments to divert at least half of the materials sent to landfills, annually.
