Westlake Trash & Recycling Schedule
The Town of Westlake contracts with Republic Services for our trash & recycling services.
Pick-up is every FRIDAY (except during Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Years when it moves to SATURDAY), 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 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.

Special Instructions During the COVID-19 Situation
Republic Services is now ONLY accepting trash that is properly bagged and placed entirely inside the cart. This small gesture will reduce the contact our sanitation workers make with our trash. Recycling should proceed as usual with no bagging. Also, please be mindful of your cart placement. We want to make sure that all carts are accessible to the trucks for pickup. Bulk pickup will proceed as usual for the foreseeable future, but Republic has asked that our residents bag as much bulk waste as possible.
