Trash & Recycling


Westlake Trash & Recycling Schedule

The Town of Westlake contracts with Republic Services for our trash & recycling services.

Pick-up is every FRIDAY (except during holiday weeks), with bulk pick-up on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month. 

If you require additional trash carts, there will be a charge of $4.33 per month. Additional recycling carts will be $1.89 per month, once a thorough audit is performed. Currently, they are free. 

If you have a broken or missing cart, believe your trash was not picked up, or have questions or concerns, please contact your Public Works Assistant at 817.490.5732 or email Dianna in Public Works
