Collection Schedule

City Services

Where you live in Woodstock will determine what day of the week your garbage and recycling will be collected, as well as, when your bulk item collection week is.

Garbage is collected weekly and recycling is collected bi-weekly (every second week). Bulk items are collected once a year in the spring.

For Recycling:
There are five areas to line up with the days of the week, and each area is divided into two routes - Route 'A' and Route 'B'. To find out when we are in your area and what route you fall under, see the back of your City Services Calendar
