Encouraging the public to keep the earth a cleaner place while getting rid of unused or unwanted items, the City of Woodstock will be holding its annual Greenstock recycling event Saturday.

From 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., area residents will be able to recycle a wide range of items at the facility set up at Woodstock Elementary School on Rope Mill Road. Among the multitude of items accepted during the event include batteries, cell phones, computer equipment, small household appliances and scrap metal. A majority of the accepted items will be taken at no cost, but some items do require a small fee to drop off, including television sets and computer monitors. There are also a handful of items that will not be accepted, including mattresses, tires and refrigerators.

In addition to the recycling event, the annual citywide yard sale will be held this weekend as well. According to the latest list available from the city, there are more than 25 individual locations that have signed up to be a part of the sale, while an additional 15 residential neighborhoods have come together in group yard sales.

More information about what will be accepted during the recycling event and locations of the citywide yard sale can be found by going to www.woodstockparksandrec.com, scrolling to the bottom of the home page and clicking on “Greenstock Day Recycle Event” under the calendar.
