Tip of the Month

Organics Recycling is More Than Just Food Waste

Did you know that you can place paper items in your organics recycling cart (brown lid) along with food scraps and yard trimmings? Paper items such as greasy pizza boxes, paper towels, napkins, paper plates and cups can be placed in your organics cart to be composted at a commercial composting facility. For more info, visit EnviroWoodland.org/Organics.

Bulky Waste Drop-Off Items

New Bulky Waste Program

Due to the event’s popularity, Waste Management and the City of Woodland are making changes this year that we hope will provide you with more flexibility.

The FREE bulky waste drop off event will now span the entire month of April and will be located at the Yolo County Landfill. Please note: Landfill will be closed April 21 for Easter.

All Woodland residents can drop off bulky items for free at the landfill using a voucher being mailed to residents in March. A maximum of 5 cubic yards of bulky waste or the equivalent of a full-size pickup truck, full-size van or small trailer (less than 3 feet high and less than 8 feet long) can be can be dropped off for free. Residents must bring the voucher and proof of residence (recent utility bill, WM bill, driver’s license, etc.) to the landfill with the items they would like to dispose of.

For more information, contact Waste Management at (530) 662-8748 or visit Waste Management's webpage.

Fix-a-Leak Week

Fix-A-Leak Week

Mark your calendars! Fix-a-Leak Week is March 18-24.

Leaks can be expensive, wasteful, and can cause property damage over time if left unfixed. Did you know that household leaks can waste nearly 1 trillion gallons of water annually nationwide? The most common types of leaks found in the home are worn toilet flappers, dripping faucets, and other leaking valves.

With the help from AquaHawk it is now easier than ever to identify possible leaks at your home or business. To check your water use and other leak detection resources visit cityofwoodland.org/FixaLeakWeek.
And remember, finding leaks isn’t just for Fix-a-Leak Week, you can always be on the hunt for leaks all year long.
