CW 2023 Calendar

Dear Woodbury Residents,

There is a new recycling application available on the Orange County website.  This application can assist everyone in determining whether an item you wish to dispose is recyclable.  Take a peak and see how easy it is to use!   

Remember why recycling is so important:  "it prevents pollution, reduces the need to harvest new raw materials, saves energy, reduce greenhouse gas emissions, saves money, reduces the amount of waste that ends up in landfills, and allows products to be used to their fullest extent."

Please note you can also download the application on your phone and take it wherever you go!

Here is the website link.  Enjoy the new application.

Dear Woodbury Residents,

The Town of Woodbury and County Waste work closely to ensure the residents of the Town have a safe, sustainable, and clean community.  Time to time, occurrences may happen that need to be addressed to better your refuse service. 

Bulk Refuse is becoming a challenge in our community and we need to work together to keep Woodbury beautiful.   We have partnered with County Waste to provide roll off dumpster service (bulk removal) for residents who are:  moving, performing renovations or major cleaning projects in their homes.   The offer is at a reduced price for Woodbury Residents.

  • Cost is $180/haul and $125/ per ton. If less than 1 ton it’s prorated and then there is a $35/delivery charge plus tax.
  • Please note the resident is responsible for the payment terms of this service.
  • If interested, call County Waste Customer Service to set up an account at (845) 355-4500 and gather further details.

Home Composting and Reducing Wasted Food

"UN Environment launched Clean Seas (#CleanSeas on social media)- in February 2017, with the aim of engaging governments, the general public and the private sector in the fight against marine plastic pollution. Over the next five years, we will address the root-cause of marine litter by targeting the production and consumption of non-recoverable and single-use plastic. To do this effectively, we need citizens to be aware, engaged and active in addressing the problem in their daily lives and beyond."
Please watch and share the latest PSA, #CleanSeas Break-Up PSA: Christmas Edition "Home for the Holidays":
