Westlake Trash & Recycling Schedule

The Town of Westlake contracts with Republic Services for our trash and recycling services. Place all trash and recyclable items out by 7 a.m. for pickup service days. Please ensure the trash receptacles and the recycle cart are at least two feet away from obstacles such as mailboxes, cars, fences, gas meters, and drainage ditches. To report a missed trash pickup on your street, call Utility Billing at 817.490.5732. 

Pick-up is every FRIDAY (except during Thanksgiving & Christmas, when it may move to Saturday).

Bulk pick-up on the 2nd and 4th Fridays of the month. 

Basic trash services consist of one trash & one recycling cart and cost $15.41 per month. All carts are 96-gallon carts. 

If you require additional trash carts, there will be a charge of $5.33 per month. Additional recycling carts 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 Utility & Facility Coordinator at 817.490.5732 or email Dianna in Public Works.
