Garbage and Recycling


Making the most out of our garbage and recycling programs is just one of the ways we can continue to keep Woodstock looking beautiful.

We offer curbside collection for garbage, recycling, bulk items, brush collection, loose leaf curbside collection and we also provide special waste depot drop-off days for items not picked up during curbside collection. We have a recycling depot located at the end of Clarke Street South where residents can drop of materials if they are not able to wait until their next recycling day.
