Tip of the Month

Your home’s temperature should change with the seasons.

If it’s too hot and muggy outside, set your thermostat to 78 degrees when you're home and 85 degrees when you're away. When it starts getting cooler, set your thermostat to 68 degrees while you are home and 55 degrees at night or while you are away.

Woodland Schools Go Green

Woodland Joint Unified School District (WJUSD) is taking one giant step closer towards zero waste by rolling out organics recycling programs in schools this year! Students can now reduce even more waste by separating their leftover food, milk cartons, and compostable trays from the trash and placing them into organics recycling bins to be composted instead of ending up in the landfill. WJUSD rolled out the new organics program at Beamer, Tafoya, Dingle, Plainfield and Spring Lake Elementary schools on the first day of school and is working on expanding the organics program to the remaining schools by the end of the year.
 
City of Woodland Environmental Services and Waste Management have partnered with WJUSD to provide free recycling and organics recycling bins, outreach material, environmental school performances, and assistance to students to help sort their food and waste at lunch.
