Each spring, the city partners with local trash and recycling haulers to offer a one-time, reduced-fee curbside recycling pick-up. This offer is only available to residential customers and excludes businesses and apartment complexes with centralized trash service.

How it works
  1. Call your trash hauler. To take advantage of this offer, you MUST contact your trash hauler to schedule a pick-up by Wednesday, May 1. No exceptions. See a list of trash haulers and phone numbers for licensed haulers in the city.
  2.  Pick-up will take place on a designated day during the week of May 13-16. Items must be at the curb by 6 a.m. More details will be provided when you call your hauler.
  3. Fees for the disposed items will be charged by your hauler. Your hauler may require payment in advance.

No scavenging, please!
It is unlawful for any person or business to scavenge or otherwise collect garbage, other refuse, recyclables, white goods, or yard
waste at the curb or from recycling containers without a license.

If you see someone tampering with and/or removing curbside recyclables and they do not appear to be a licensed hauler, please contact the Woodbury Public Safety Department at 651-439-9381. If possible, attempt to obtain a description and license plate number of the vehicle involved.
