***ATTENTION ALL TRASH & RECYCLING CUSTOMERS***

We have recently partnered with Republic Services to conduct an audit of all residential trash carts being serviced in the Town. You may see a difference in your utility bill if we did not previously show the correct number of carts for your household. As a reminder, every home is granted one trash cart & one recycling cart at the standard rate of $11.29 per month. 

Every additional trash cart is $5 per month.

Additional recycling carts are FREE! This is to encourage conservation & recycling. If you would like to adjust your cart count, please contact your Public Works Assistant at 817.490.5732 or email at dorender@westlake-tx.org.

WINTER QUARTER AVERAGING
Every March, the Town of Westlake calculates each resident’s sewer volume utilizing the Winter Quarter Average rate method. This is determined by averaging the usage of water in December, January, and February of each calendar year - typically the lowest 3 months of usage in the year. This average then sets the billing volume of sewer usage for the following 12 months.

By practicing water conservation techniques, residents can reduce their wastewater bill by monitoring water usage during the winter months and repairing any leaks in their system.

You can take a hands-on approach by monitoring your water usage closely by using the EyeOnWater program app. This can help you analyze your peak usage times, quantities, and quickly identify a leak.
