Garbage & Recycling

The City of Wood Village sets solid waste and recycling collection service rates and standards through a franchise agreement with Waste Management of Oregon. Standard curbside service includes weekly collection of garbage, recyclables and yard debris. Waste Management also offers a range of services, including large item hauling for a fee and clean-up containers and drop boxes. Additional information is available on their website.

Holiday Recycling and Garbage Service

Garbage and recycling are collected on all holidays except Christmas and New Year’s Day.

If your collection day falls on or after Christmas or New Year’s Day, collection will be one day later that week with Friday customers being serviced on Saturday.

Tree Recycling:

Curbside Waste Management customers may recycle trees in place of regular yard debris set out at no extra charge. Trees over 6 feet tall must be cut in half. There will be an extra fee of $4.84 for any additional yard waste collected the same week as your tree. Flocked trees are accepted as extra garbage pickup for a $4.84 fee per six-foot sections. Trees with tinsel or ornaments may not be recycled; remove those items.  Don’t have curbside service, use the Find a Recyler Tool from Metro to find a an easy option.
