The City of Woodland provides recycling pickup services free of charge to its residents.
Beginning January 1, 2021, this service will be provided by Republic Services. The pickup day and schedule will stay the same: every other Thursday, have materials curbside by 7 a.m.

Valet service is any recycling pickup that is not curbside at the street.
Woodland is happy to arrange valet service as an add-on to the basic curbside service for $11/month or $132/year (Republic fee plus 10% administrative charge), invoiced annually each December and must be paid by January 1. Valet service is defined as pickup that is not curbside at the street, regardless of whether it is walk-up or drive up by the Republic crew. Valet service requires two documents to be signed and returned to City Hall (20225 Cottagewood Road, Deephaven, MN 55331) or emailed to [email protected]:
Hennepin County Drop-Off Facilities
Hennepin County has two year-round drop-off facilities where residents can get rid of recycling, electronics, appliances and household hazardous wastes.
Organics recycling is accepted Tuesdays-Saturdays at the Bloomington and Brooklyn Park locations of the Hennepin County Drop-Off Facilities. No charge, up to five bags.
Guidelines for organics recycling at the Hennepin County Drop-off Facilities:
Organics must be generated in Hennepin County and be separated from trash and recyclables. Must also be in a closed BPI-certified compostable plastic bag. Look for the BPI logo and go to www.bpiworld.org for more info.
Acceptable materials include:
All food – fruits, vegetables, meat, fish, bones, dairy products, eggs, egg shells, pasta, beans, rice, bread, cereal, nuts and shells
- Non-recyclable and food-soiled paper not coated with plastic – pizza boxes from delivery, napkins, paper towels, paper egg cartons, facial tissue
- Certified compostable products – compostable paper and plastic cups, plates, bowls, utensils and containers. Look for the BPI or Cedar Grove logos or the term “compostable” on certified products.
- Other compostable items – coffee grounds and filters, hair and nail clippings, cotton balls and swabs with paper stems, houseplants and flowers, tea bags, wooden items such as chopsticks, popsicle sticks and toothpicks.
Arrangements for disposing of yard waste may be made with your garbage service or waste may be dropped off at County disposal sites. Hennepin County offers yard and tree waste disposal and sells low-cost compost bins to all county residents. In addition, the Mulch Store accepts yard waste drop offs and is a resource for compost, mulch and more.
